Extended Information
Access has always been an issue due to the remote location. Still inaccessible by public roads, the Lodge could only be approached via an old drove road until 1894 when the Highland Railway opened. Stirling Maxwell agreed to the railway crossing his land on condition that Corrour Railway Station was built. He had a track built for pony and trap to travel the mile (1.6 km) to Loch Ossian and constructed a pier and boathouse from where the Laird and his guests would be conveyed by his steam yacht up the loch to Corrour Lodge. Later a track was built along the southern shore of the loch allowing motor cars to be used to complete the journey from the station. An access track from the northeast was constructed by the Forestry Commission in 1972.
