Trains to Saltcoats

Saltcoats railway station is found in the little town of Saltcoats near the shores of the Firth of Clyde in West Scotland. It’s one of the earliest stations in Scotland having opened in 1840 by the then Ardrossan Railway. Two decades later, the station was moved a little further up the tracks and then again in 1882 to its current location. It also went through a name change in the ’50s and early ‘60s when it was changed to Saltcoats Central. Today, the station and the trains that pass through on the Ayrshire Coast Line are managed by Abellio ScotRail. The two original stone station buildings still sit alongside the platforms, one used as the ticket office, the other as a cafe. Shelters are either provided by the buildings’ overhanding roofs or a modern glass waiting shelter. Other facilities include digital displays, bench seating and self-service ticket machines. There’s an hourly direct service to Ardrossan Harbour in 7 minutes and two to three direct trains an hour eastbound to Glasgow Central in 36 minutes.

When you disembark at Saltcoats, you’ll find several things to do within walking distance of the platform. History buffs should make a beeline for the North Ayrshire Heritage Centre which houses exhibits and artefacts from the region’s past in a former church or the ruins of the centuries-old Ardrossan Castle.
