Bridge of Orchy Railway Station


(Drochaid Urchaidh)

An unstaffed rural railway station in Argyll and Bute, Bridge of Orchy Station (Gael: Drochaid Urchaidh) is situated on the West Highland Line, a quarter-mile (0.5 km) east southeast of the hamlet of Bridge of Orchy and 1½ miles (2.5 km) south of Loch Tulla. Opened in 1894, it is now operated by ScotRail and is used by around 6000 passengers per annum (2015). Although the line is single-track, the station includes a passing loop, with an island platform between the two lines. The picturesque little station building is now used as a hostel for those walking the West Highland Way, which passes the station. Bridge of Orchy is preceded by Upper Tyndrum Railway Station, 6 miles (10 km) to the south southeast, and followed by Rannoch Railway Station, 14 miles (22 km) to the north northeast.
