Rannoch railway station is one of Scotland’s remotest stations and serves the little community of Rannoch. It’s surrounded by the starkly beautiful Rannoch Moor making it one of the most attractive too. It opened in the late-19th century along the West Highland Line which had to be constructed on a bed of tree roots and ash to prevent it sinking into the moorland bog. The station is laid out with an island platform serving two lines that pass by and houses the original station building. Today, it is managed along with the trains that pass through by Abellio ScotRail. The daily Highland Caledonian Sleeper stops at the station each day on its way to London Euston. There’s also three direct departures a day to Mallaig in 2 hours 27 minutes and Glasgow Queen Street in 2 hours 47 minutes.
When you disembark at Rannoch, be sure to drop into the Rannoch Station Tea Room for a freshly brewed tea and scones loaded with clotted cream and jam. Afterwards, you can lace up your boots and go hiking directly from the station across the moorland trails.
