Name and dates

Locheilside (1901-)

Opened on the Mallaig Extension (West Highland Railway).

Description

This is a single platform station. It originally had a typical Mallaig Extension building such as that at Glenfinnan or Arisaig, but this has been lost. There is a shelter. The platform is on the north side of the line with Loch Eil just across the track.

A passing loop was proposed here several time, but not installed.

7.79 miles from Banavie Junction [2nd].
