Name and dates

Strathcarron (1870-)

Opened on the Dingwall and Skye Railway.

Open on the Kyle Line.


Description

This is a two platform station with a passing loop on a single track railway.

The main station building, of two storeys and of the same style as those at Achnasheen and Garve, is on the eastbound platform. The tracks have wide separation, due to a proposal to provide clearance to carry fishing boats on the line. The goods yard was on the north side of the line, at the east end of the station and approached from the east. Most of this yard is now lifted except a short PW siding. A hotel was built by the station. The station has a fine lattice footbridge.

Strathcarron was the end of the road, originally this did not continue west along the south bank of Loch Carron. With the extension of the station access road west a level crossing now exists at the west end of the station.
