Description

The railway system to the north and west of Inverness passes through some remote and beautiful parts of Scotland and there is a varied mix of scenery to enjoy from the train, including farmland, mountains, lochs, moorland and spectacular coastal stretches.

Both the Kyle and Far North lines were built as single track with passing places by companies which became part of the Highland Railway. Thurso is the most northerly terminus in Scotland and Kyle station has a stunning location across from the Isle of Skye.

When the Kyle line was threatened with closure in the 1970s, David Price travelled the line, and by the 1980s he was able to make several visits to photograph the Class 37s then employed beyond Inverness. Here, David presents a wonderful selection of steam and diesel photographs from the last four decades of one of the most picturesque routes in Britain.
