Corrour Station House RestaurantRannoch Moor
Be prepared for stunning scenery, absolutely no traffic noise and a very warm welcome from Lizzie and chef, Ollie at what is (probably) one of the most remote restaurants and real ale outlets in the UK.
Corrour Estate do not permit vehicles and access is by rail, foot or mountain bike over private estate roads.
At 411m (1350ft) Corrour is acknowledged to be the most remote and highest main line railway station in the UK and was opened in August 1894 to serve Corrour Lodge at the far end of Loch Ossain which is still used today.
The rail journey takes 45 minutes from Fort William or 3 hours from Glasgow and all points in between. The night sleeper from London (to Fort William) stops at about 09:00.
If you are walking or cycling in, Fort William is 20 miles and Spean Bridge 15 miles.
There are four en suite bedrooms available should you wish to stay for longer. There is also a Scottish Youth Hostel a mile away.
The restaurant has four tables serving dinner showcasing the best of local produce, including Corrour wild venison. Non residents MUST book.
The facilities are open to residents from 08:00 in the morning for breakfast and light lunches around mid day.
On two Saturdays in August 2013, before the revised opening times, 70 people arrived during the course of the day! Lizzie and Ollie did their very best to “feed and water” everyone, but some had to eat standing at the bar!
Casks are collected from the end of a 17 mile estate track on Tuesdays and although "badged", as Courror Gold, it is actually Cairngorm Gold.
Cleverly, the cask is kept in a mini fridge under the bar at just the right temperature. Plans are to add another pump the demand has been that great.
Try the easy but spectacular 8 mile circular walk / ride round Loch Ossain on estate tracks to work up an appetite before dining and getting the train back, unless of course you are staying the night!
Please Note:- opens seasonally and closed on Monday and Tuesday low season, and Tuesday's in high season. But BEFORE visiting, and to avoid disappointment, contact to confirm they will be open and book using email (best), land line or mobile 07786216350.
