Name and dates

Corrour (1934-)

Opened on the West Highland Railway.


Description

This small station on the West Highland Railway is only accessible by train, or via a very long private road. In summer the station is a B+B and restaurant Corrour Station House Restaurant. This replaced the former stationmaster's cottage in 1998.

The station has an island platform and retains its original listed signal box. This is the only remaining example of its type on the West Highland - it is a combined signal box and station building.

The original passenger building on the platform does not survive. The loop is released by ground frames and is not generally used to allow trains to pass and there is a siding. The station famously features in the film Trainspotting.
