Conon Bridge railway station lies next to the River Conon just 10 miles or so north-west of Inverness in the Scottish Highlands along the Far North and Kyle of Lochalsh Lines. It’s used by the small community of Conon Bridge and the surrounding villages. It originally opened as simply Conon in the mid-19th century by the then Inverness and Ross-shire Railway with two platforms. Unfortunately, due to a decline in passenger numbers, the station closed in the early ‘60s. Fast forward to today and the station was completely reconstructed in 2013 with an investment from Network Rail to serve an estimated 36,000 passengers a year. The facilities at Conon-bridge are basic with one platform managed by Abellio ScotRail. There are thirteen daily direct services to Inverness taking between 27 and 30 minutes.
When you disembark, you’ll find a pretty Scottish village with a coffee shop and a cosy pub. If you’ve brought your hiking boots, be sure to make a beeline for the Dunglass Island and the River Conon walk which passes tree-lined footpaths on a circuit around the nearby island and offers views over the Cromarty Firth.
