Name and dates

Bunchrew (1862-1960)

Opened on the Inverness and Ross-shire Railway.


Description

This was, latterly, a two platform station. For much of its existence it was a single platform with a siding at the east end.

The main station building, on the eastbound (original) platform, remains intact and is now a house. The westbound platform is intact.

When the line was doubled the westbound platform and line were added. After singling the eastbound line was lifted.

The platforms were modernised and raised, except by the station building.

To the immediate north of the former station are some former railway cottages. There was a manure factory to the north of the line, the site is now housing. Further to the north, on the coast, is Bunchrew House, now a hotel.

To the west of the station sidings served Bunchrew Gravel Pit.
