Trains to Lanark

The Clyde Valley town of Lanark is one of the oldest royal burghs in Scotland - and the train journey to it runs along one of Britain's most charming rail lines, Argyle Line. The station itself is located on Bannatyne Street and was opened in 1855; today it offers half hourly services to Glasgow Central, arriving in the city in just under an hour. If there's one thing Lanark has plenty of, it's history. In the 10th century it became the home to the first Scottish Parliament, and the St Nicholas Parish Church houses one of the oldest church bells in the world. Lanark was granted a royal charter in the 12th century, and the event is still commemorated over 800 years later: Lanimer Day, held every June, sees the town's 'merchants' checking the boundary stones and crowning a Lanimer Queen. Other highlights include Lanark Loch, Castlebank Park and the World Heritage Site of New Lanark.

Station details & facilities

Lanark station's main entrance is up a set of stairs on Bannatyne Street, with the ticket office on the right as you reach the top. As a terminus station, it's easy to navigate: both platforms are right in front of you, and both serve Glasgow Central. The station has few amenities, with only bike racks, help points and a shelter on the platforms. For step-free access, use the ramp entrance to platform 1 from the station car park.
