View of the station looking towards Dingwall

Achnashellach (also spelt Auchnashellach) Station, lies 64 kilometres from Dingwall on the line to Kyle of Lochalsh opened on 19 August 1870 and is still open for passengers in 2008. Goods service ceased on 27 January 1964. it was the scene of a runaway train in 1892 caused by the Highland's lack of a continuous brake and its habit of putting goods wagons at the front of mixed passenger and goods trains. It had a loop where east and westbound trains could pass but this was removed in 1966.
