Attadale

Location type

Station


Name and dates

Attadale (1878-)

Opened on the Dingwall and Skye Railway.

Open on the Kyle Line.


Description

This is a very small station with a single platform. The original small timber building has been replaced with a concrete equivalent.

Historically there was a siding at the east end of the platform, served from the east and removed in 1979. The platform is on the south side of the line. The halt serves Attadale House, once home of the Mathesons of Jardine Matheson fame.

Attadale was proposed as a possible terminus of the line with a pier and large station with waiting and refreshment rooms. Fortunately this unsuitable location for a pier was not used and the line extended west to Stromeferry.
