Open Day at Wemyss Bay Pier and Station


Friends of Wemyss Bay Station are holding an Open Day to raise awareness of the unique qualities of this historic pier and station. All are welcome.

From 10.30am until 4.30pm

Friends of Wemyss Bay Station is a group run by local people who share concern for the state and appearance of the station, with the aim of reinstating the station’s traditional floral displays. Much has already been done to improve the ambience of the station.

The present station and pier were built just over 100 years ago, in 1903, by the Caledonian Railway Company. An Edwardian masterpiece, it is the last of the Clyde’s magnificent railway piers still in use. It well deserves its Category A architectural listing, with its graceful curves and elegant glass canopies, still protecting passengers coming off the trains and heading down for the boat connection to Rothesay on Bute.

The Open Day will feature a variety of stalls and displays provided by volunteer organisations.
