Lochluichart [2nd] (1880-1954)
Opened on the Dingwall and Skye Railway.
Note: text in square brackets is added for clarity and was not part of the location's name.
This was a single platform station with a small building and small goods yard. This station replaced a private halt Lochluichart [1st] which was closer to Lochluichart Lodge and to the east. The station closed when Loch Luichart was damned for a hydroscheme and replaced by a new station just to the north, Lochluichart.
The station had a platform on the north side of the line and a goods loading bank to the east. There was a station building and railway cottage just to the north.
The water level was to rise with the hydroscheme so a portion of the line was re-aligned to the north. This included the station and, to the west, a bridge over the River Conon.
The goods loading bank can still be found and the choked and overgrown site of the passenger platform. The station building and cottage are gone. The trackbed can be followed in both directions, usually just barely above the water level.
