Kingussie Railway Station

Kingussie Railway Station (known in Gaelic as Ceann a’ Ghiùthsaich) serves the Highland Line, a quarter-mile (0.4 km) southwest of the centre of the village in Highland Council Area. A station was established here, on the last section of the Inverness and Perth Junction Railway to open in 1863. The current buildings date from 1894, the work of William Roberts in the vernacular style. They comprise a long single-storey building with a rather shorter canopy in front and a two-storey station-master's house behind, all B-listed since 1971. The two platforms are linked by a cast-iron footbridge. One of these platforms serves a passing loop on an otherwise single-track line. Now operated by ScotRail, Kingussie Railway Station is staffed part-time and passenger numbers have grown from 35,838 per annum in 2010 to 44,200 in 2017. It is preceded by Newtonmore Railway Station, 2¾ miles (4.5 km) to the west southwest, and followed by Aviemore, 11 miles (18 km) to the northeast. Kingussie High School lies just to the east of the station.
