At the height of the railway era, the Scottish Highlands had a total of 183 railway stations, serving some of the most remotest parts of Britain - road transport was virtually non-existent and every village wanted its own station. Today there are just sixty-eight stations left to cover this vast area, but unlike other parts of the country, the prospect seems set for an upturn in railway use. Some stations have been reopened and, just as they were a hundred years ago, railways continue to be a major lifeline for the economies of Caithness and Sutherland.
This book provides a fascinating pictorial history of the railways of the area, and includes around 50 black and white photographs, dating from the 1880's through to the 1960's. Locations featured include: Banavie, Roy Bridge, Clachnaharry, Oban, Tomatin, Aviemore, Ballachulish, Kentallan, Duror, Craegan, Benderloch, Campbeltown, Kilkerran, Machrihanish, Skelbo, Boat of Garten, Fort Augustus, Fort George, Fortrose, Avoch, Munlochy, Fort William, Inverness, Lybster, Strathpeffer, Kincraig, Gollanfield, Loch Awe, Helmsdale, The Mound, Lairg, Bonar Bridge, Edderton, Invergordon, Muir of Ord, Beauly and Clunes.
