Achanalt train station is a remote railway halt in the North of Scotland. It is the least used station on the Kyle of Lochalsh Line, which connects Achanalt with Dingwell and Inverness. The fastest journey time to Inverness is 1 hour and 13 minutes. Dingwall is 39 minutes away and Kyle of Lockalsh can be reached in 1 hour, 24 minutes.

Achanalt is a small settlement of the A832 road, set in an area of stunning Highland beauty. The nearby Achanalt loch and reservoir and surrounding marshes are home to several rare bird species and have been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. 

The single platform contains a small shelter and cycle racks but is unstaffed; the old stationmaster’s house is now a private residence. Weekdays and Saturdays see four trains a day pass through Achanalt station, with one on Sundays (two in the summer months: May to September). Achanalt train station is a request stop so passengers who wish to board or alight here will need to make the driver aware, either with a hand signal from the station platform or by speaking to the conductor when they board the train.
