Trains to Inverness

Inverness station opened in 1855 and was extended in 1876 before an entire station overhaul in the 1960s. The station's most prominent feature is its location. The train delivers passengers into the heart of the town after a heady journey with Highland vistas out of every window. The town itself offers the ultimate tartan experience, with the annual Scottish Showtime featuring authentic ceilidh dancing and bagpipe playing all under the watchful eye of the 1830's Gothic Inverness Castle looming large on the horizon. Equally impressive is the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders memorial directly in front of the station. Erected in 1893 it bears the names of 142 soldiers from Inverness who lost their lives in the Egypt and the Sudan conflict (1882-1899). Station Square was purposefully chosen as the statue's location to insure maximum exposure and reverence from visitors to the city.
