Strathcarron railway station is a remote railway station on the Kyle of Lochalsh Line, serving the small village of Strathcarron and the larger village of Lochcarron in the Highlands, northern Scotland.
The station was built by Murdoch Paterson between 1869 and 1870. The station was opened to passengers on 19 August 1870 by the Dingwall and Skye Railway. The lattice-girder footbridge was built by the Rose Street Foundry in 1900.
One of the Kyle line's three passing loops is located at the station (and trains are sometimes scheduled to cross here), though the Radio Electronic Token Block signalling system used is remotely supervised from Inverness. The Radio Electronic Token Block (RETB) was installed by British Rail.
Four trains per day each way call at the station Mon-Sat, with two each way on summer Sundays and a single service each way on Sundays in the winter months.
