Rail

 

Although in the past Killearn was served by a passenger rail service, that ‘luxury’ has long since past, with thanks to Dr Beeching. Today rail travel is achieved by first traveling to either Glasgow Queen Street, Glasgow Central or Milngavie train stations. Then changing to the 10/C10 bus service either at Glasgow Buchanan Bus Station or Milngavie train station. For more information about the local bus service please visit our bus services page.

Rail Information, including timetables and fares can be obtained by phoning National Rail enquiries on 08457 48 49 50. Alternatively you can consult the National Rail Enquiries website.
