Thurso Station

Thurso station was opened on 18 July 1874, the most northern station in Britain. Built for the Sutherland & Caithness Railway, it was the terminus of the Georgemas Junction - Thurso section of the 'Far North' line of the former Highland Railway.

The station has a single platform with a wooden overall roof to help combat the elements. It is almost identical in design to the station at Wick. Today, the train returns to Georgemas Junction before heading east to the terminus at Wick. Previously, the train would split in half at the Georgemas Junction, with one section going to Wick and the orther to Thurso.
