The bus shelter at Graham s Point is fully enclosed and rectangular-plan with cast iron panels to the bottom half and horizontal and margin-pane glazing above. There are some minor decorative details, including fluting to the corner columns and along a band course below the windows. This particular example appears to have originally had a further entrance to the rear.

Statement of Special Interest

This circa 1960 cast iron bus shelter at Graham s Point in Kilmun is a distinctive feature along the Shore Road. Cast iron bus shelters of this type are rare and this example at Graham s Point is understood to be the only one of its type that remains in use in the Argyll and Bute region. Two identical shelters formerly at Dunoon Pier were donated to the Glasgow Bus Museum in Bridgeton and the Scottish Vintage Bus Museum at Lathalmond, Dunfermline in 2015. The classically-influenced design was produced by the Lion Foundry as Bus Queue Shelter No.2 and has much in common with the iconic red K6 Telephone Kiosk designed by Giles Gilbert Scott, which was also produced by the Lion Foundry. The shelter was manufactured in sections and could be built to any length.

About Designations

Listed Buildings

We list buildings of special architectural or historic interest and these are selected according to criteria published in the, Annex 2, pp74-76.

The information in the listed building record gives an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building(s). It is not a definitive historical account or a complete description of the building(s). The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

Enquiries relating to works to listed buildings should be made to the local authority in the first instance. Listed building consent is required for works which a local authority considers will affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest and local authorities also decide if listed building consent is required.

Listing covers both the exterior and the interior. Listing can cover structures not mentioned which are part of the curtilage of the building, such as boundary walls, gates, gatepiers, ancillary buildings etc. The local authority is responsible for advising on what is covered by the listing including the curtilage of a listed building. For information about curtilage see

Legislation introduced on 1 October 2015 allows us to state that: an object or structure fixed to the listed building; any object or structure within the curtilage of the listed building; and, any part or feature of the listed building that is not of architectural or historic interest may be excluded from a listing. If part of your building is not listed under the new legislation, the part will be excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the Historic Environment Scotland Act 2014. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect current legislation.
