Lairg Railway Station


(Luirg)

Lairg Railway Station (Gael: Luirg) is situated on the Far North Line of the Highland Railway, 1½ miles (2.5 km) south of Lairg and 3¾ miles (6 km) northeast of Linsidemore in Sutherland. This station was opened in 1868 on the former Sutherland Railway. It comprises two platforms, one serving a passing loop on what is otherwise a single-track line. A lattice-girder footbridge allows passengers to cross from one platform to the other. There are sidings which were once used for the movement of cattle, goods and oil. Now operated by ScotRail, Lairg Railway Station is unstaffed and is used by around 7500 passengers per year (2015). The station represents an interchange with local bus services. It is preceded by Invershin Railway Station, 5½ miles (9 km) to the south, and followed by Rogart, 8½ miles (14 km) to the east.
