Larkhall Railway Station

(Taigh na h-Uiseig)

Larkhall Railway Station (referred to in Gaelic as Taigh na h-Uiseig) is the terminus of the Larkhall Line in South Lanarkshire. It is located in the town centre and comprises two platforms serving a pair of sidings which link to a single-track line. The station was built in 1907 by the Caledonian Railway on a line which once extended on to Stonehouse and beyond. This line closed in the 1960s, a victim of railway rationalisation, but reopened to provide a commuter service in 2005. Larkhall is followed by Merryton Railway Station, a half-mile (1 km) to the north. Now operated by ScotRail, Larkhall is unstaffed and is used by 420,000 passengers per annum (2015-15), representing a significant increase from 327,000 passengers just five years previously.
