Bha Rèile an Eilein Duibh na mheur de Rèile na Gàidhealtachd bho thùs. Bha e a' giùlan luchd-siubhail eadar 1894 agus 1951(bathar gu 1960) agus bha e a' ruith eadar Am Blàr Dubh agus A' Chananaich agus bha e a' stad aig stèiseanan anns a' Chaisteal Dhearg, Alan, Bun Lòchaidh agus Abhach.

San earrainn èisteachd seo bho na 1980an, tha cuideigin a bha a' fuireach san Eilean Dubh a' cuimhneachadh buaidh sòisealta an rèile.

'In the 20s and 30s the Black Isle was really quite isolated, if it weren't for the railway. There were very few cars and it was an adventure even to go down to Kessock Ferry. But the lifeline for us was the railway. It was a sort of family affair. You met people - if you were going steadily, regularly to Inverness - you met people in the train and friendships were formed.

You see, in those days, the railway was a sort of social meeting place. Now if any young person, belonging to the area, was leaving the area for any reason whatsoever, to go to university - it was only the university or training college in those days, nothing else - university, training college, or you were going off to train as a nurse - these were the main ones - the whole village turned up to say goodbye to you. And you got chocolates and flowers and goodness knows what not. Everybody turned up. The local minister Mr Craig, he used to turn up and give you the blessing before you went off. And then, of course, you were all-, tears tripping you as you were leaving. But the point was they were all there to say goodbye to you and shower gifts on you as you were leaving the area'
