Our Impressions of Station Park

Station Park has really been spruced up over the past couple of years, and is now one of the best grounds in the Highland League for spectators, even if the outside of the ground is still a little grim. The main stand seats 150 on benches painted yellow and black, and the views are reasonable from most seats, although there are a couple of pillars that can restrict the view.
On the other side of the park is a long covered terrace with stepped concrete banking, which provides good shelter and amplifies the noise of the home support tremendously. Behind each goal is grass banking, but there is a stone-chip path leading from the turnstiles right around the ground, which saves getting wet feet!

Club offices and shop are housed in Portakabins by the entrance, and the pie shop is situated under the Main Stand. The Gents toilets are adequate, if open to the elements, and again are tucked behind the main stand. Floodlights are not the brightest, but do their job, and the pitch looked in very good condition for a wet November.
