Laurencekirk Railway Station was opened on the 1st of November 1849 by the Aberdeen Railway Company. It is one of the few purpose built stations in the area, and, despite its closure on the 4th of September 1967, survives in remarkably good condition. The cast-iron canopy, internal and external detailing are all of note.
