Duncraig railway station is a remote railway station by the shore of Loch Carron on the Kyle of Lochalsh Line, serving Duncraig Castle, a mansion near Plockton, in the Highland council area of northern Scotland. It was originally a private station, and features a unique little octagonal waiting room. The station is unstaffed and is a request stop.
Monday to Saturday, Duncraig is served, by request, by four services each way between Inverness and Kyle of Lochalsh. On Sundays, there are two services each way in summer, reducing to one each way in winter.
