A compact little shop with a wonderful assortment of gifts, and an insight of the station as it was back in the days when the station master was indeed master of all he surveyed.

This is an interesting station with a packed shop and a railway museum. Nearby there is also a model railway layout in a converted signal box - worth a visit anytime.

A small walk from Kyle's main car park, you will find this working station and a small museum of the Kyle line. Very informative how the place use to be and packed with gifts and caters for the steam train enthusiast. Set in outstanding scenery.
