Strathpeffer [1st] (1870-1885)
Opened on the Dingwall and Skye Railway.
Note: text in square brackets is added for clarity and was not part of the location's name.
This was the first station to serve Strathpeffer and was very inconveniently located away from the town and up a hill due to local opposition to taking the line through the town.
The town was later served by Strathpeffer [2nd], the terminus of a branch, and this station renamed Achterneed. There were two platforms, reduced to one before closure. Little remains of the station save the railway cottages.
