Platform 1, WESTBOUND

Describe Online

Overview

This is a separate platform along the south side of the station, serving trains towards Glasgow. There is tactile paving along the edge of the platform.

To Reach,

There is level access from the car park which can be reached from Main Street. There is also steep access between Main Street, just southeast of the road bridge and the car park. Note that this latter route is very steep and is therefore unsuitable for some users. See the Environs page for details.
