Boat of Garten
As you enter Boat of Garten (also known as The Osprey Village) you will see one of the area’s finest golf courses, designed by James Braid and created by locals and railwaymen! The RSPB observation hide at the Osprey Centre is situated 3 miles from the village and is best visited during summer, when the Ospreys return from the warmer climates of Africa. There are also plenty of walks and cycle trails, perfect for families, couples or groups exploring the area.
Tickets are available to purchase at both Boat of Garten and Broomhill station but are not available to purchase on line.
Our Rover Ticket allows passengers to travel on all three services during the day. This is not the same as departing on one service and returning on another which is a Full Line Return Ticket

Broomhill (also known as Glenbogle Station)
Five miles from Boat of Garten, heading north alongside the river Spey, brings you to our Broomhill Station, the current terminus of our line. The Station originally served the nearby villages of Dulnain Bridge and Nethy Bridge on the original Great North of Scotland Railway line. The forests in this area offer real diversity – there’s plenty of wildlife and nature to explore here. The views from Broomhill are well worth making the journey by train. Make sure you get off the train at the Station, there’s photo opportunities with the scenery and you can walk up to the locomotive to meet the locomotive driver and fireman and perhaps get some photos on the footplate.
The train then returns to Aviemore along the same route, stopping again briefly at Boat of Garten station before reaching the terminus at Aviemore station
