Beauly Railway Station


(A' Mhanachainn)

A halt on the Far North and Kyle of Lochalsh Lines of the Highland Railway, Beauly Railway Station (Gael: A' Mhanachainn) lies on a single-track railway line which sweeps around the head of the Beauly Firth, forming the western boundary of the settlement of Beauly. It opened in 1862 on the Inverness & Ross-shire Railway but closed in 1960 as part of the rationalisation of the railway network. However, following a local campaign, the station re-opened in 2002. Now operated by ScotRail, Beauly Station is unstaffed comprising only a single platform and modern shelter. Beauly is noted as having the shortest platform of any station in Great Britain, measuring 15.06m (49 feet 4 inches) and long enough for only a single carriage. It is used by 51,094 passengers per annum (2009-10). It is preceded by Inverness Railway Station, 9½ miles (15 km) to the east, and followed by Muir of Ord, 2¾ miles (4.5 km) to the north.
