Have stopped by here in the station house's various guises over the years, and the current set up is the best yet. Whilst the old restaurant was nice (but pricey, and actually pretty unwelcoming to anyone that wasn't wanting a three course meal), this better caters for the needs of the travellers who find themselves there. Great prices, a warm... More

stayed here a while back and apologies for taking so long to writing a review. I really wanted to extend my thanks to the wonderful couple that run the Corrour Station House, all staff are delightful and go out their way for every guest. The location (quiet and intimate) and the quality of food is excellent but the customer service... More

Eating at Corrour Station is not simply about the food. Don't get me wrong the food stands out all by its own merit but the experience elevates the food to make it a very special event. Arriving by train, excited by the remote wilderness we had a warm welcome at the Station House even though I only wanted to use... More

We visited Corrour Station House as party if a group booking as part of days celebration with friend as he climbed his last Corbett. (Impressive achievement!). Station House looked after us fantastically with excellent soup sandwiches cakes etc all in their wonderful homely environment. I look forward to returning some time to stay overnight.

This is a dream restaurant in one of the world's most beautiful and remote spots. Easily accessible by train, it offers shelter and great food for hillwalkers, trainspotters, and anyone on the way to and from Fort William. The architecture is also strikingly beautiful. Great food and fabulous atmosphere at one of the UK's highest-altitude restaurants

Travelled out to Corrour station by train from fort William (railcard very handy and saves money) Excellent setting and the food was 100% local venison that was just perfect. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The prices were good value for money and worth every penny.

Great day out starting with a train journey from Glasgow to Corrour. A 12 mile walk around the beautiful Loch Ossian.... Stopping for a brew of tea at the Youth Hostel.... Then back to Corrour Station where we enjoyed an amazing meal and hospitalty at the Station House Restaurant before catching the train home.

Outstanding accommodation considering the remoteness of the location. The rooms are new with a view to die for, comfortable beds, good bathroom. The residents lounge in the old signal box has 360 degree vistas of the moors with the bonus of watching deer or trains! The meals in the Corrour Station House Restaurant are excellent despite the small menu choice... More

Description
Hidden away in the Scottish Highlands, Corrour Station House is one of the most remote restaurants in Scotland, as it is only accessible via train or on foot. After being welcomed by a roaring fire, we serve teas, coffees, homebaked goods, soups and filling Scottish-themed meals, including local venison. We cater for a large range of guests including hillwalkers, train enthusiasts and other visitors to this beautiful location. We are open 7 days a week, from 8.30am till 9pm, throughout the months of April to October. Closing date for the 2016 season is the 31st October. We will re-open in March 2017.

A response to the (luckily very few) negative reviews, most recently of Bob F on April 2nd. Basically all bad reviews are about the same thing: a combination of limited opening times, few amenities on the station platform, the mandatory reservation for dinner and the possible consequences of showing up outside of those opening times or arriving much too late.

Their reservation policy is very clearly stated everywhere and is basically the only policy that allows them to survive. For a place like that to be open to everybody at all times is simply impossible - others have tried and failed. I think it's brave and wonderful that this couple have taken on this endeavour and present a well thought-through approach.

Other reviews say the proprietors are hospitable, warm and welcoming, and are known to help out where they can. The bad reviews are only from people that can't wrap their heads around what is needed to keep a special place like this open. Corrour isn't like any other restaurant and knowing exactly how many people will come and when is absolutely crucial for their survival (for example because they'd need to purchase a lot of things they'll have to throw away if nobody comes).

Making exceptions will cause more exceptions. I totally understand people's disappointment but at the same time I don't think your reviews are fair - you knew this is a one of kind sort of place and could have easily tried to check the website, make a reservation, etc.

Please also note that it isn't the proprietors' responsibility to help out travellers in need. The station is as remote as it gets and going there takes a bit of preparation. If you are stuck there and think there should be toilets and a vending machine - totally understandable, but that's a Scotrail issue, not something the hotel should be held responsible for. They have been known to go out of their way to help people out - but there are limits to what they can do if they want to keep a business going.

I know this is not a question, but I really felt the need to express this. Please note that I am not in any way affiliated with Courrour Station House Restaurant/Hotel (I will stay there in May). I'm just somebody that reads other reviews, sees the heartfelt and long responses of the proprietors, has common sense and is sensitive to unfairness.
