Station


Name and dates

Dava (1864-1965)

Opened on the Inverness and Perth Junction Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station (platforms long enough for 12 carriage trains as a former mainline). There was a loading bank to the north of the station, on the east side of the line. This was a somewhat remote station, not far north of Dava Summit. Today the railway cottages and former station building are houses.

The Dava Way runs north from Grantown-on-Spey West to Forres taking in much of the trackbed of the former railway. The Dava Way avoids the station itself but approaches the former station along the trackbed from either direction (Dava Way ).
