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.
