Kyle Line

The Kyle Line is a culmination of Scotland's railway history. It joins the Inverness & Aberdeen Junction Railway constructed between Inverness and Dingwall in 1862, the Dingwall & Skye Railway built in 1870 to connect Dingwall and Stromeferry, and the Highland Railway's Kyle Extension that ran from Stromeferry to Kyle of Lochalsh in 1897.

Nearly 125 years after the trains made their first complete journey to the coast, the Kyle Line remains a favorite of travelers hoping to immerse themselves in the Scottish Highlands' natural splendor. Beginning in Inverness, the train creeps along Beauly Firth's shores, offering a taste of the beauty to come on the route. Charming small towns are scattered throughout the landscape, and the train makes its first stop in Dingwall, the true beginning point for the Kyle Line. After Dingwall, the towering summit of Ben Wyvis peeks over the horizon, and then Lochs Luichart and Carron come into view. Lovely hamlets, quaint villages, peaty bog lands, open meadows, and rolling terrain are just some of the sights that lie ahead.

Passengers look over the mighty Torridon Peaks and marvel at the dense pine trees of the Achnashellach Forest. A bit further, the scenic village of Plockton emerges, and travelers will notice that in addition to being timelessly charming, the locale also boasts palm trees - something not often seen in the Scottish landscape. Coastal vistas come into sight as the train approaches Kyle. Beautiful whitewashed buildings complement the deep blue water of Loch Alsh and the deep green mountains framing the backdrop. In pursuit of this seaside gem, the train traverses over 80 miles, crossing those famous hand-constructed bridges and weaving through rocky mountainscapes at a leisurely pace. The 2-hour, 40-minute ride is one of many delights.

“Everything was decent. The weather didn't cooperate with us for this trip so we did miss out on a lot of the train side of our great rail journey. This was my first time booking this type of trip and while I think it was a good experience I have decided that I prefer a more leisurely vacation with a less structured itinerary.

“Great tour guide. Very flexible travel - weather permitting. It was fun although I thought we would be sleeping on a train and did not realize it was an out and back in adventure every day. Hotel was nice, their food was average. Tea magnificent and staff very accommodating.
