Name and dates

Lairg (1868-)

Opened on the Sutherland Railway.

Open on the Far North Line.


Description

This is a two platform station on the Far North Line.

Station buildings remain standing and there is an oil depot siding south of the station (Lairg Oil Depot). The main station building is similar to that at Invershin, that now being ruinous. To the south of the station, on the east side of the line, are oil sidings. A Highland Railway goods shed still stood until the early 2000s.

The south cabin was on the west side of the line, at the south end of the northbound platform opposite the sidings. The north cabin was at the north end of the southbound platform, not far from the level crossing.

The station is some way south of Lairg itself, nearly two miles.
