The station has been restored to provide a number of small craft shops, a tea room and the Museum of Childhood. A five minute walk from the Square will take you to the Victorian Railway Station. An express train, the Strathpeffer Express, once served Strathpeffer which was a spa town in Victorian days with a large number of hotels, one of which was owned by the Highland Railway (There was a railway branch line there from 1885 to 1951). Trains no longer bring visitors to Strathpeffer, but the Victorian railway station still stands. There are picnic tables, areas for parking and walks all available from here. Dogs are welcome. The converted Victorian Railway Station is now a museum of life in the Victorian spa town. More info: see Highland Museum Of Childhood, Strathpeffer Museum
The Strathpeffer Victorian Day is normally held about the second weekend in June. Contact the tourist information on 01997 421 415 for more details.
