Who we are
Kyle Station Museum is located in the historic station buildings at Kyle of Lochalsh railway station. It is run by our charity, Skye & Kyle Rail Development Company, Scottish Registered Charity No. SC030238. The charity was founded by local volunteers who successfully campaigned to save the Kyle Line from closure in the 1970s.
The museum opened in 2000. It is supported by the Friends of the Kyle Line, a voluntary association. Find out how to join the Friends of the Kyle Line.
Our charity also runs the Signal Box Holiday Apartment in Kyle, which we restored in 2013. Rental income from the Signal Box helps us run and develop the museum.
What we do
The aim of our charity is to encourage people to learn about the history and importance of the Kyle Line Railway, in order to promote and protect this iconic railway line for the future. We also seek to encourage understanding of the wider local history of our area, in particular the links between the Kyle Line Railway, Kyle Harbour and local fishing. We do this by running Kyle Station Museum and associated marketing, events and publications, and by working in partnership with other organisations.

Staff and Volunteers
We are hugely grateful to the many volunteers who have worked with us over the years. Without them the Museum simply would not exist.
