Auldearn was a railway station located near Nairn, in the Scottish administrative area of Highland. The station was on the line from Aberdeen to Inverness.

History[edit]

Opened by the Highland Railway, it became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The line then passed on to the Scottish Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948. It was then closed by the British Railways Board.

The site today[edit]

Trains still pass the site on the Aberdeen to Inverness Line.
