Childhood Memories Of Corrour Railway Station

Donnie MacNicol was born at Corrour Station in 1923. His father was the station master and this short video is his story.

Donnie MacNicol was born in 1923 at Corrour Station on the West Highland Line between Fort William and Glasgow. The station is the highest and possibly the most remote on the British mainland. His father was the Station Master and Sub Postmaster at the station, Therefore Donnie grew up travelling to school every day on a steam train to  Fort William.  The video below is Donnie's memories during a visit to his birthplace in the summer of 2011.

Stories from Corrour from Andy McKenna on Vimeo.

Corrour is a working Highland Estate in the mountains and glens east of Ben Nevis. The train stops at Corrour Station several times a day and provides a vital link for people working and staying on the estate and at the Scottish Youth Hostel.

There is a superb cafe/restaurant at the station and a fantastic evening out is possible by catching a train leaving Fort William early evening and arriving at Corrour an hour later. Visitors can then enjoy a meal and relax amongst the mountains before catching the  Fort William train from Glasgow around 9pm. This really is a great short railway journey!

Experienced walkers can take a route from Corrour Station to Glen Nevis which can be a great  walking day out  through the hills to Steall falls.
