  • Dunrobin Castle railway station is a railway station on the Far North Line in Scotland. It is open only during the summer when the castle that the station gets its name from is open. It is closed from late October to March every year. It was originally a private station for the castle, the seat of the Duke of Sutherland. The Arts and Crafts style waiting room was constructed in 1902, and is a category B listed building. Dunrobin Castle is situated near the village of Golspie. It was described in the Railway Magazine: The Duke of Sutherland has a beautiful private railway station. As is well-known, his Grace owns a large proportion of the North of Scotland, and his famous seat of Dunrobin Castle in that district has its own station for the Duke and his household, called after the Castle, "Dunrobin." The station is one of those on the line of the Highland Railway, and lies between Brora and Golspie, in Sutherlandshire. The Duke has had the place made not only serviceable, but very picturesque in its design and finish. The general outline seems to be that of a Swiss chalet, and this appearance is not lessened by the surrounding hilly district. The windows are latticed, and look very cosy, whilst all the waiting-rooms and other necessary adjuncts to such a station are well fitted up. With true patriotism his lordship determined that Scotch pine should be used as far as possible in the construction of his station, so that he had it built of that wood. Thus it is extremely strongly made, as it needs to be to resist the ravages of snow and wind that sweep so terribly across the Sutherland moors in winter. As a rule the platforms of private stations are very small, but this one at Dunrobin is an exception. It is very long, for often the family at the Castle will entertain three or four hundred guests at a time, when important fĂȘtes or events are taking place there. The station is 86 miles 22 chains (138.8 km) from Inverness, and has a single platform which is long enough for a three-coach train. (en)
