Bunchrew railway station, 1961

Bunchrew (Scottish Gaelic: Bun Chraoibh) is a small village close to the south shore of Beauly Firth in the Highland council area of Scotland. It is 5 km west of the city of Inverness, on the A862 road.

The name is from Bun Chraoibh, Gaelic for "foot of the tree".[1]

It has a caravan and camping site[2] and Bunchrew House — a historic mansion that is now a hotel — is on the shore of the firth nearby.[3]

Bunchrew had a station on the Inverness and Ross-shire Railway, which opened in 1862. This station closed to passengers in 1960, and to goods in 1964.
