Culrain railway station serves the village of Culrain on the Kyle of Sutherland in the Highland council area of Scotland. It is located on the Far North Line. The railway line through Culrain is single track, with the nearest passing loop to the north being at Lairg and to the south at Ardgay.
The station is close to Carbisdale Castle, which operated from 1945 to 2011 as a youth hostel owned by the Scottish Youth Hostels Association. The hostel has been closed since 2011 as a result of structural damage and it is unclear when or whether it will reopen.
