Station


Name and dates

Struan (1863-1965)

Opened on the Inverness and Perth Junction Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station just west of the Garry Viaduct. The platforms remain here, out of use, and there are some Highland Railway style worker's cottages.

The main station building was on the northbound platform, with a smaller example on the southbound. The northbound platform was the original, from before the line was doubled.

There was a goods yard at the west end of the station with sidings on either side of the line and a goods shed to the south. Sidings and crossovers were removed around 1965 when the station closed.

Just to the south is the Struan Inn.
