Shunters' Bothy

The busy station employed men as shunters to connect and

disconnect both passenger carriages and cattle wagons.

They were provided with a bothy with a corrugated iron roof

against the wall here.

It was convenient for the long sidings where cattle wagons

were stored as well as the point  where passenger trains

were split for Peterhead and Fraserburgh.
