All Aboard! Departures from Platform 3, Aviemore Railway Station

The Strathspey Railway invites you to travel back in time as you journey through the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. The Park boasts a spectacular catalogue of nature, culture and heritage which includes Britain's highest mountain range, its biggest and best ancient forests, wildlife such as red squirrels, reindeer and ospreys, and so much more!  What better way to explore this magnificent locale than on board one of our vintage trains.

Aviemore developed as a small village after the Inverness & Perth Junction Railway (from 1865 the Highland Railway) opened in 1863. During the next few years a handful of houses, primarily for railway staff, a post office and a general store were built. The period of development saw the station became the main junction between the new route to Inverness and the old route via Boat of Garten. Aviemore’s role as a main line junction ceased with the closure of the route to Forres in 1965. Today the railway operates from the beautifully restored Victorian Station located in the centre of the village.
