Lochluichart Railway Station


(Loch Laoicheart)

A halt on the Kyle of Lochalsh branch of the Highland Railway, Lochluichart (Gael: Loch Laoicheart) lies on the northwestern shore of Loch Luichart, to the southwest of the settlement of the same name and 9½ miles (15 km) west northwest of Contin. Opened in 1871 on the Dingwall & Skye Railway, it was originally a private station for the Lochluichart Estate but was made available for public use from 1887. Lochluichart is preceded by Garve Railway Station, 4½ miles (7 km) to the east, and followed by Achanalt, 4 miles (6.5 km) to the west. Now operated by ScotRail, Lochluichart Railway Station is unstaffed and was used by only 392 passengers in 2009-10, although annual numbers have subsequently swelled to more than 600 (2016).
