Inverurie Station, Station Road, 1902. A three-platform through station of the Great North of Scotland Railway replacing the small, cramped station of 1852, which lay half a mile to the south, and emphasising Inverurie's key position at the heart of the new communications system in central Aberdeenshire. On down-platform is a long single-storey office building in coursed rubble with cupola and wind vane which doubles as a ventilator. Good cast-iron piers for awning; was also junction for Oldmeldrum railway. Station refurbished 1989.
