The Milton of Crathes platform, engine shed and other facilities were built by the Royal Deeside Railway Preservation Society (RDRPS) on a greenfield site on the formation of the lifted (and overgrown) Deeside Line, which is being partially relaid by RDRPS, starting from 2003.
The handsome, wooden, Victorian station building (below) was transported from its former site at Oldmeldrum, where it had survived decades of alternative commercial use. It was reconstructed by RDRPS in 2012/3. Although adapted for modern use on a preserved railway, the building is predominantly formed of its original materials.
Milton of Crathes is the Headquarters of the Royal Deeside Railway Preservation Society (RDRPS).
