Location formerly entered as NH 5825 5110.


Formerly also entered in error as NH54NE 85 at incorrect location NH c. 583 495.

(Location cited as NH 583 495). Redcastle Station, opened 1894 by the Highland Rly. Formerly a two-platform through station. The down-platform building is an empty structure on an L plan with an awning in the nagle, now empty. Nearby is a one-story and attic masonry station house.

J R Hume 1977.

This intermediate station on the Muir of Ord - Fortrose ('Black Isle') branch of the former Highland Rly was opened (by that company) on 1 February 1894. It closed to regular passenger traffic (with the line as a whole) on 1 October 1951.

The location assigned to this record is essentially tentative. That of the station cannot be derived from the available map evidence.

This station is visible on RAF 'National Survey' vertical air photographs CPE/SCOT/UK 184 3309-10, flown 9 October 1946.
