Strathpeffer railway station was a railway station serving the town of Strathpeffer in the county of Ross and Cromarty, (later Highland Region), Scotland. The first station was located some distance from the town, on the Dingwall and Skye Railway line, and was opened in 1870.
Seasonal visitors to Strathpeffer increased considerably in numbers, and a branch line to Strathpeffer itself was opened in 1885; the earlier station was renamed Achterneed. Tourism increased considerably, but the First World War interrupted the leisure development, and it never recovered after the war.
In 1946 the second Strathpeffer station was closed to passengers. The earlier station, now called Achterneed, continued in use, being located on a through line, but it closed in 1964.

Was closed, doesn’t open till about April very disappointed. Loads of people were asking could have doe with better info, and why have signs out on main road when shut?!!! more »
Easy stroll from the Hotels in the village - wonderful Museum full of history along with the history of the station itself. more »
Very beautiful Victorian train station. A quaint shop with various handcrafted items. The childhood museum is also very interesting. Very friendly ladies behind the counter!
Fast approaching 60 and it took me back to when I was a kid. Staff friendly. Very enjoyable.
