Famously the most remote station in the UK, inaccessible by public roads, Corrour station is nevertheless home to the superb Corrour Station House Restaurant. From Fort William you can easily get there and back in an evening and have plenty of time for dinner, so I decided to do exactly that.

The station's two platforms are on an island separated from the station house by a siding. Looking south along the central platforms as the train disappears off:

Looking north along the island platform. The freight wagons on the siding aren't usually there, but a freight train derailed near Tulloch a few weeks before, and this was the nearest place the wagons could be parked.

The derailment happened just before the station house restaurant opened in new hands, and the couple operating it were worried that the wagons were blocking people's view of the restaurant. Here there is certainly only a small gap:
