I underestimated the length of the walk from Falls of Cruachan to Loch Awe, so it turned into something of a forced march and I arrived slightly out of breath but with five minutes to spare before the next train.

On the platform looking eastwards:

There are two accesses to the station. The first is via these steps:

The steps lead up to a footbridge which spans the tracks and gives access to the second, now disused, platform and the lochside:
