Rannoch Station

Located approximately 18 miles from the village of Kinloch Rannoch, Rannoch Station is one of the most remote railway stations in the British Isles. Designed by James Miller, it is on the famous West Highland Line which links Glasgow on the Firth of Clyde, to Mallaig on the west coast, via Fort William, and runs across the remote wilderness of Rannoch Moor. The station building itself sits on a small island between the “up” line and the “down” line.

History of Kinloch Rannoch

There is evidence of settlement in the area surrounding Kinloch Rannoch from as far back as 500AD when the missionary St. Blane arrived although the name remains a mystery, as the word “kinloch” means head of a loch, rather than the foot, where the village is located. For many hundreds of years, this tiny and remote hamlet was home to a few primitive people who lived a poverty-stricken existence, surviving mainly by thieving and, for a long time, there were no roads or bridges in the area.
