Statement of Interest

The West Highland Railway was opened in 1894 and runs from Craigendoran to Fort William. The stations and associated buildings are generally believed to be the work of James Miller but Robert Wemyss may also have been responsible for the design while working with J J Burnet. The former station master?s house is listed separately. Arrochar and Tarbet station is listed separately.
