The Kyle Line

From Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh. Leaving Inverness, the line curves around the western edge of the Beauly Firth to Dingwall before heading West through mountains and lakes, through Strath Bran and Glen Carron, before the final few miles from Strath Carron, alongside Loch Carron into the small port of Kyle of Lochalsh on the West Coast.

Kyle of Lochalsh was a one-time ferry port for the Isle of Skye, before the opening of the nearby road bridge in 1995.

  • Train frequency: Inverness-Kyle – two return trips each day; one on Sundays.
