  Scene showing Rannoch Moor   Locomotive 61264, an L.N.E.R class B1, on Rannoch Moor.

The railway across Rannoch Moor, part of the West Higland Line which starts at Glasgow, is single track and meets the road in the south at Bridge of Orchy.

Travelling north road and rail then diverge and the next station is Rannoch Station in the middle of nowhere followed by Corrour Station which is also in the middle of nowhere. There is lots of 'nowhere' on Rannoch Moor!

Another view of the same train. This locomotive was built in 1947 by the North British Locomotive Company and used to run on Scottish lines during its working life.

The railway runs up to Fort William and thence to Mallaig on the West Coast. The trains on this line are not normally steam hauled but steam hauled trains do run on special occasions. This photograph was taken during the 2003 Highland Steam Festival.

This view is near Kingshouse just before the descent into Glen Coe. In good weather the scenery on Rannoch Moor can be breathtaking.
