Overview

11 September 2021 (10 am to 4 pm) Inverclyde The Category A listed railway
station opened in 1865, but the station was completely rebuilt in 1903 to
accommodate the large number of passengers. A key feature of the design is use
of curves to ease the flow of passengers. The same principle was applied at
Glasgow Central station, which was rebuilt about the same time. The pier was
designed so that several queues for the steamers could be accommodated, with
different queues for different destinations. Although the ferry now only goes
to Rothesay, Wemyss Bay used to have regular sailings to Largs and Millport,
as well as day trips further afield. It remains one of Scotland’s most
remarkable stations and was recently judged by architectural critic Sir Simon
Jenkins as one of the top ten stations in the UK. The station and pier have
returned to their original Caledonian Railway colour scheme. Tours must be
prebooked by emailing info@friendsofwemyssbaystation.co.uk to check time
slots. Saturday only. Gallery (function () { $owlContainer = $('.owl-
