Archaeology Notes

NH74NW 52 7148 4756

Not to be confused with Culloden Moor Station (NH 7623 4568), for which see NH74NE 41.00.

For nearby Railway Cottages, see NH74NE 56.

Culloden Station (probably opened 6.11.1855) until 1.11.1898, then after known as Allanfearn Station; closed 3.5.1965.

(Undated) information in NMRS.

This intermediate station on the Inverness-Nairn line of the former Highland Rly was opened (by the Inverness and Nairn Rly.) on 5 November 1855 as Culloden Station; this line formed part of the Inverness-Aberdeen main line of the Highland and Great North of Scotland Rlys. The station was renamed Allanfearn Station (presumably to avoid confusion with Culloden Moor Station, NH74NE 41.00); it was grouped into the London, Midland and Scottish Rly. in 1923 and closed to regular passenger traffic on 3 May 1965. The line itself remains in use.
