Achanalt Station looking west

This view is looking west and shows station buildings and signal box, also the posts carrying the signal wires (left) to keep these clear of snow.

Achanalt Station is on the Dingwall and Skye Railway, better known as the Kyle Line. It lies a little over 34 kilometres west of Dingwall. Originally spelt Achanault, it opened for goods on 9 August 1870 and for passengers on the 19th, it is still open for passengers (as a request stop) in 2008, though not for goods since 2 November 1964. There was a passing loop to enable trains to pass on the single line but this was removed in 1966.
