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.

(Location cited as NJ 776 218). Rebuilt 1902 by the Great North of Scotland Rly. A three-platform through station, formerly the junction for Oldmeldrum. The main offices are on the down platform in a long single-storey, coursed-rubble building. The most interesting feature of this is an attractive cupola with windvane, which functions as a ventilator. The island-platform building is a large single-storey wooden structure with an all-round glazed awning supported on cast-iron piers. The goods shed is a sizeable wooden structure.
