Corrour Railway Tracks,Rannoch Moor, Scotland

Corrour Railway Station is the highest mainland station in the UK. It is also one of the most remote, at 1,339 feet above sea level its location on Rannoch Moor means that it is not accessible by public road. The station opened in 1894 mainly for passengers involved in the Corrour Estates stalking and hunting activities and was originally built by investors of the Estate.

In 1997 a new Station House was built (on left of photo) erected as a provisions shop and restaurant for hillwalkers who frequent the area to climb the Munros in the vicinity.

Despite its remote location the Station boasts a direct connection to London Euston.

This photograph which I titled 'The end of the Line' shows the now disused line which used to carry trains to Fort William.
