Rannoch Station, some evening images.
Where was Trevor Howard ????:Eek!: (Brief Encounter !!!)
Is there a car park there to overnight in ???:Cool::Cool:
Edit.....Just google earthed it !! It would appear so !!
nice set of images, go back in the summer time and everything will look different.
We was going down to Rannoch Station a couple of years ago but the council were preparing to dig the road up and would have been stuck there for over a week, so slept at the side of the river, lovely quiet spot, we will get all the way there one day,
Steve are you getting confused with Carnforth Station in Lancashire? :Wink:
Brilliant. What memories!
In the 70's I was there many Easter times helping with a schools 'Adventure Training'.
I remember that the station was manned by a women whoose name I think was Williams who lived there.. Also party nights in The Moor of Rannock Hotel run by a tall hairy dressed scotsman I think called Alasdair or somethink similar; expert stalker and fly fisherman.
( made his own flys)
I remember the local council dustcart turning up one lunchtime. The 4 of them got out their musical instruments and played for hours; as the various whiskys flowed.
Happy days!! Must get my Diary and photos out.
Magic Highlands at Easter before the awful klegs hatched.
No canteen there ! so no tea and buns !!
Nope, just the lady on her own on the platform !! And I do know it was filmed at Carnforth !! so there !:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
Thank you, folks. Great to read your recollections. I overnighted by the bridge just back down the road at 56.685713, -4.54465.
I'm reminded now of a laddish book I read recently and found very amusing - much of it is set on the West Highland Way: The Hills are Stuffed with Swedish Girls. (It was highly recommended in the Mountain Coffee Company's good bookshop and café at Gairloch).
