Crianlarich

Crianlarich (A'Chrion Laraich) is the junction of the Oban and Fort William lines. Most daytime train services have Oban and Fort William portions, which join or split at Crianlarich. The small village has hotels, guest houses, a local shop and bar/restaurant.

There is a popular tearoom, open during the summer, on the platform at Crianlarich station.

The old engine shed is now used by the Permanent Way engineers. Rising immediately behind, with its snowy top hidden in the clouds, is Cruach Ardrain and on the left the flank of Ben More, the highest mountain in Britain south of Strath Tay. The picture of two 'Black 5s' being prepared for the journey south on a Scottish Railway Preservation Society charter, was taken from outside the old engine shed. Click to enlarge.
