Altnabreac Railway Station


(Allt nam Breac)

A station on the Highland Railway, Altnabreac (Gael: Allt nam Breac) lies between Forsinard to the west and Scotscalder Station to the east, 23 miles (37 km) west of Wick. Built in 1874, this is one of the most remote stations in Britain, located at the heart of the Caithness Flow Country, with the nearest road 7½ miles (12 km) to the west. It is preceded by Forsinard Railway Station, 7½ miles (12 km) to the west southwest, and followed by Scotscalder, 8½ miles (14 km) to the northeast. Operated by ScotRail, the station is unmanned but the station building is now a private residence. It was used by only 156 passengers in 2009-10.
