Route Description

The Bogie Line path starts at Croy Station and follows the south side of the railway line in an easterly direction.  After about 1.5km, either continue straight ahead to reach the Wester Dullatur railway bridge which enables access to Croy Hill or turn right to follow a path around the top of an old quarry into Dullatur village. The route of the Bogie Line is partly track and partly path, but is in need of some work.

OS Landranger 64 (Glasgow)

Heritage Information

Circa 1900, this path was the route of a small gauge, horse drawn, bogie railway which carried whinstone from the nearby Auchinbee and Croy quarries to a loading area at Croy Station.

It is also said that coal was exported along it, and that miners living in Dullatur used the route to get to Croy Pit.
