Yarrows Heritage Trust

Thrumster Station Project
The former Thrumster railway station was purchased by the Yarrows Heritage Trust in 2005.

The station building is the sole remaining station building on the former Wick to Lybster Light Railway which closed in 1944.

The Trust have undertaken to renovate the building together with the platform and adjacent grounds.

Phase 1 of the Project which is currently underway includes recreating the station platform and a short section of rail track together with tidying and landscaping of the adjacent grounds to form a public amenity area.

Phase 1 of the Project is jointly funded by the Trust and a grant award from Forward Scotlandís Community Environmental Renewal Scheme.

The Trust are now seeking funding to progress Phase 2 of the Project which will involve renovation of the Station building to form a centre for display of information relating to heritage in the Yarrows area.
