Statement of Interest

Carrbridge Station is the largest of the timber-clad station buildings built by the Highland Railway in the 1890s as part of their direct line to Inverness and one of only a small number that remain in operation (2013). The cast-iron columned, timber bracketed awning and polychromatic brick stacks are characteristic of Highland Railways station buildings of the period. The glazed outshot to the left gable originally housed signalling instruments and was added by the newly formed British Rail (Scottish Region) in around 1950 in a similar style to the timber-framed building.
