Possibly Scotland's most mysterious and most isolated train station, Altnabreac Railway Station serves the rural settlement of Altnabreac in the Highland council area. Opened in 1874, the station predates the closest sources of trade, making its original purpose a mystery. A passing loop nearby suggests the station may have originally been opened for wholly operational purposes, regardless of its isolated locale.
Today, the station remains borderline silent, with its single platform seeing only four northbound trains and three southbound trains a day, Monday through Saturday. As Altnabreac is a request stop, these trains do not stop unless requested ahead of time. Additionally, there is a single train on the Wick-Inverness route of the Far North line that passes through Altnabreac, but does not stop. On Sundays, one train from Altnabreac departs in each direction. Due to the isolated nature of the station and the remoteness of the nearby settlement, the station is used primarily by walkers and those favouring isolated regions.
