Dingwall and Inverness bound diesel locomotive hauled train in station

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.
