The bus shelter at Graham s Point is fully enclosed and rectangular-plan with cast iron panels to the bottom half and horizontal and margin-pane glazing above. There are some minor decorative details, including fluting to the corner columns and along a band course below the windows. This particular example appears to have originally had a further entrance to the rear.
This circa 1960 cast iron bus shelter at Graham s Point in Kilmun is a distinctive feature along the Shore Road. Cast iron bus shelters of this type are rare and this example at Graham s Point is understood to be the only one of its type that remains in use in the Argyll and Bute region. Two identical shelters formerly at Dunoon Pier were donated to the Glasgow Bus Museum in Bridgeton and the Scottish Vintage Bus Museum at Lathalmond, Dunfermline in 2015. The classically-influenced design was produced by the Lion Foundry as Bus Queue Shelter No.2 and has much in common with the iconic red K6 Telephone Kiosk designed by Giles Gilbert Scott, which was also produced by the Lion Foundry. The shelter was manufactured in sections and could be built to any length.
