Dalwhinnie railway station is halfway between Perth and Inverness and nestled in the heart of the Cairngorm National Park. The station itself holds several accolades not only is it the highest mainline station in the UK it’s also the coldest. The station first opened its doors to customers in 1863 and the surrounding buildings were completed a year later.

With 5 daily services to Inverness, Perth, Edinburgh, and Glasgow the station has become popular with hikers who set out from Dalwhinnie to bag a few Munro’s (mountains in Scotland over 3000 feet). To start you have Ben Alder and a fair few more between Loch Ericht to Loch Laggan.  

With the Caledonian Sleeper also calling at Dalwhinnie on its way to and from Inverness and London Euston there’s plenty of ways of reaching this picturesque destination and taking in the spectacular Scottish Highlands.

If that wasn’t enough just up the road from the station, you’ll find Dalwhinnie Distillery where you can enjoy a dram or two and take several different tours of the property.
