Two stops worth of lovely scenery along from Roy Bridge is Corrour station. Famous for being 17 miles from the nearest public road and the highest and remotest train station in the country, it also featured in the film Trainspotting.
A trip to Corrour provides the opportunity for a fine day of the best of Scottish scenery and hillwalking before catching the train back to Roy Bridge.
Trains leave Roy Bridge at 8.02am or 12.02pm, depending on how long you fancy walking. From the station you have several options:
– a paved, level path takes you on a circuit around Loch Ossian, making for a good family walk or cycle (there are a few bumpy bits on the south side of the loch)
– finally if you want to walk or cycle back up to Tulloch station (in between Roy Bridge and Corrour) you can take the path along the East side of the tracks, which will take you back along the shores of Loch Treig.
The Corrour Station Restaurant – a charming adaptation of the old station house into a lovely restaurant and bar – is now open all day for most of the week and provides the ideal way to stop for a break, or round off the evening with a fine meal.
Just make sure you don’t miss the last train back to Roy Bridge at 9.20pm.
