Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh – The Dingwall & Skye Railway is undoubtedly one of Britain’s most beautiful lines and now you have the chance of seeing it as the Driver does – from the cab!
Shot in mid-summer, the route is seen at its most spectacular!
We begin with our train departing from Inverness, hauled by a class 37 diesel.
From there to Dingwall we travel alongside the Beauly Firth and witness some of the last remaining Highland Railway semaphores still in operation.
At Dingwall we enter the R.E.T.B. system (Radio Electronic Token Block) and turn due west for the Highlands!
We traverse the summits at Ravens Rock, Corriemoillie and Luib (the highest at 646ft) and stations such as Garve, Achnasheen and Strathcarron set amidst the beautiful Highland scenery.
Finally, the most spectacular section, Stromeferry to Kyle on the shores of Loch Carron.
In addition there are features on the long closed branch to the spa town at Strathpeffer, and a detailed look at the RETB both in the cab and at Dingwall.
