The station was Bonar Bridge Station until 1977, when it was renamed to Ardgay Station. When built, the station served as an important meeting point between two historical lines: the Sutherland Railway and the Inverness and Ross-shire Railway. The year after the Old Ticket Office was opened as a ticket office, the Highland Railway was established and continues to run to this day.
The rear of the property has views out onto the southbound platform and throughout the day seven trains pass through en-route to Inverness or Thurso/Wick in the north. This section is known as the Far North Line as it is the most northern reaches of the British rail network. The property serves as a fantastically convenient base from which to explore this wonderful area by train! The view out onto the platform is unique not just because it is a small, rural and attractive station, but also because it is right beside the sea. The views over the tracks to the Dornoch Firth are spectacular.
It’s a fantastic, comfortable holiday home for two people, with the added bonus of a sofa bed for flexible sleeping. Set all on the ground floor, the property comprises a double bedroom, shower room, living room and kitchen/dining room. All rooms except the bathroom have views out to the sea beyond the station. Ardgay is a small village but boasts a great local shop/cafe in the northern Highlands. Only a mile down the road is the larger settlement of Bonar Bridge, also offering great places to eat and drink. To the east on either side of the Dornoch Firth you will find amazing Dornoch with its world-famous Royal golf club, little cathedral, huge sandy beach and many amazing shops to explore. To the south the town of Tain offers all the services you could need along with the Glenmorangie Distillery to nip into (excuse the pun!).
The Old Ticket Office is very well located for you to explore the northern Highlands in all. The NC500 is 11 miles to the east, and with Lairg just up the road (the crossroads of the Highlands) there are many amazing routes to take for the north and west coasts. In 45 minutes, you can be on the west coast in the other-worldly Assynt area and in just over an hour you can be on the north coast of Scotland (joining up with the NC500 again in the west and north). It’s a truly outstanding spot from which to enjoy an amazing Highland holiday. Beach 15 miles.
