Trains to Sanquhar

Sanquhar railway station is in the remote village of Sanquhar in Dumfries. It was opened in the mid-19th century and served passengers for more than a century before closing down in the mid ‘60s after the Beeching Axe. British Rail reopened the station in the ‘90s and it’s now managed along the with trains that pass through on the Glasgow South Western Line by Abellio ScotRail. The old station building still sits next to one of the platforms, though it was sold off to a private investor some time ago. It’s an unstaffed station with no facilities for purchasing tickets, so they must either be bought online in advance or on board the train with the conductor. Facilities are a little basic at the station with just bench seating on both sides of the tracks and modern glass waiting shelters. There are direct services every two hours southbound to Dumfries in 27 minutes and northbound to Glasgow Central in 1 hour 16 minutes, though this is reduced significantly on Sundays.

It might be small, but there is a surprisingly large number of things to do in Sanquhar. If you’ve brought the kids, you could take them to the Sanquhar Academy Playing Field for a kick about. Alternatively, visit the Sanquhar Tolbooth Museum to discover more about the region’s history before gorging on a cream tea at Burnside Tearooms.
