Trains to Dumfries

Trains to Dumfries glide along the banks of the River Nith, passing over the beautiful scenery of southern Scotland before stopping in the northeast of the town centre. Constructed in 1859, the station is a charming building in red sandstone - a common material in the area thanks to the local Locharbriggs quarry - with decorative cast-iron columns. It’s to the north of the town centre, a short walk from the shops around Queensbury Street and High Street. Be prepared for a sing-along as you leave the carriage, as it was in Dumfries that Robert Burns penned the world-famous Auld Lang Syne. He also died in here in 1796, and the town has a marble statue of the great poet a ten-minute walk from the station. Other highlights include Greyfriars Church, the World War 2 Aviation Museum and the Threave Estate and Drumlanrig Castle, just a short bus ride away.

Station details & facilities

There are entrances on either side of the station. The main concourse is on the west side, off Station Road, and is adjacent to platform 1 (towards Glasgow). The eastern entrance leads on to platform 2 (towards Carlisle). A footbridge connects the platforms, but step-free access is only possible from the street - so it’s worth checking which side of the station you need before you travel.
