The railway line between Strathcarron and Kyle of Lochalsh provides one of the most spectacular railway journeys in the British Isles.

Between Strathcarron and Stromeferry, the track closely follows the shoreline of Loch Carron, so closely that in some places one almost gets the impression of travelling across water!
Stromeferry was originally the terminus of the railway, but an extension of the line to Kyle was opened in 1897 to link up with a ferry crossing to Skye from Kyle to Kyleakin. At one time there was also a ferry service from Kyle to Stornoway, but, with the advent of greater private car ownership, this was replaced with a crossing from Stornoway to Ullapool.
The rail journey from Stromeferry through to Kyle is equally spectacular, as the line continues to hug the coastline. Along the way there are stations at Plockton and Duirinish.
