About usReservations

Great food & atmosphere

Unique West Highland Railway Restaurant

‘Dine on the Line’ in the historic setting of a converted Victorian railway station on the world famous West Highland Line. This is where trainee Commando’s started their legendary training in the Second World War with a march from the station to Castle Commando.

The line is also famous for its association with the Harry Potter movies, while the exclusive Royal Scotsman train stops on the platform outside our door overnight most Fridays in summer.

Relax beside the fire in our cosy bar & soak up the atmosphere of the Old Station.
