Glencarron Platform (1873-1962)
Opened on the Dingwall and Skye Railway.
This was a single platform halt with a small wooden shelter and passenger operated signal to let drivers of trains know that a call was needed.
The platform and building still exist, the platform is on the south side of the line, but trains no longer call. The halt was an inconvenient place to call, being on the hard climb for westbound trains from Achnasheen to Achnashellach.
It was built to serve Glencarron Lodge, just to the north.
Just to the east the line crosses the River Carron.
