🚂 Love Glenfinnan Viaduct & NTS Glenfinnan Monument?
✔️ Fancy a holiday with a difference?
📆 We need you from Sat 21 to Sat 28 March!

Join us for a unique week of volunteering while staying in a historic railway carriage at Glenfinnan railway station. You'll help to improve both the popular footpath on the hillside overlooking the Viaduct and the garden around our iconic Jacobite memorial on the shores of Loch Shiel.

We've teamed up with our friends at Glenfinnan Railway Station & Museum to offer a special The National Trust for Scotland Thistle Camp. This is a "working" holiday where you'll meet lovely people and get involved with a variety of outdoors conservation tasks, all surrounded by amazing views.

💚 Give something back to the places you love.

Brief Encounters on the West Highland Line

A play inspired by the classic film by David Lean.

Especially written for performance in station tearooms and lineside venues, the play is now available for events and tours across Scotland’s rural railway network.

YouTube video promo – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxUwHjWXLjM&t=3s

The play highlights themes of rural setting, seasonal employment and fleeting relationships. Always accessible by train, it lends itself to staging at rail-side venues in combination with a meal, thus boosting local trade. Although the play was originally written for the West Highlands, it can be tailored to any specific area.

Following a successful tour on the West Highland Line and an ACoRP bronze award for Best Community Engagement project in 2018, the performance company – The Iron Road Collective – are looking outwards to expand their captivating brand of railway related performance. With the initial run of performances selling out within a week, the play left audiences wanting more and is sure to draw people in and strengthen railway awareness in your area. For more detailed information / statistics on the production run and a project report, please contact the WHCRP via email.

Cost: £900 per performance – discounts available for longer runs and special rates for CRPs and Friends associations.

For more information on hosting and funding your own bespoke performance, please contact the WHCRP via email: [email protected]

After a major upgrade, we reopened for the Summer season in 2012. The museum now features many new exhibits and audio visual media. As well as increasing our exhibition space by opening our stunning signal box, we have included educational space for groups and research facilities for individuals. Our 1950's built dining car provides great refreshments and light meals, while the sleeping car bunkhouse sleeps up to 10, providing a fantastic base for exploring the West Highlands.

Invergarry Station restoration project

24/07/2012

Amid increasing visitor numbers for both the Glenfinnan Station Museum and The Jacobite Steam Train comes the launch of a range of special Scottish Ale for sale on the train and at the museum.

Following careful note of customer requests Glenfinnan Station Museum and the Isle of Skye Brewing Company have produced 3 bottled ales to suit a wide taste range. The bottle labels feature 3 different attractive West Highland Railway scenes and are marketed under the West Highland Steam Ale title.
Individually the products are called Full : Heavy : Light reflecting both taste and reference to the days of steam locally.

The products were launched at the Museum and on The Jacobite for the first time on Monday 23 July. Visitors and passengers were given the chance to taste the brews prior to purchase which resulted in a very merry journey to Mallaig for all concerned.

The launch coincides with the switch on of the new Glenfinnan Station Museum website where online shopping will feature the special bottled ales as well as other chosen merchandise.

This follows a Summer of high activity at Glenfinnan with a station rebuild now enhanced by a developing garden and flower display which is attracting attention and comments. Museum Director – Gerald Rivett already involved in the Spean Bridge Station Garden project is now involved with the garden at Glenfinnan Station and restoring some local pride in what our West Highland Stations should look like to users and visitors alike.

Museum Curator – John Barnes is delighted with the progress made this year with visitor numbers. The launch of both a new Harry Potter book and film is certainly playing a part and rumours of filming locally later this year for the next Harry Potter blockbuster will give another boost.
