We visited here for lunch on Sunday 15th October 2017. What an amazing place! Wonderful staff and gorgeous food. We loved the venison stew and the sticky toffee pudding. Can't wait for a return visit. Would highly recommend.

In the remotest part of Scotland, which is also the remotest bit of Western Europe, on the vast expanse of Rannoch Moor there stands a single house, green and white wooden siding, indeed like an old station house, at Corrour Station, that serves such great...More

A response to the (luckily very few) negative reviews, most recently of Bob F on April 2nd. Basically all bad reviews are about the same thing: a combination of limited opening times, few amenities on the station platform, the mandatory reservation for dinner and the possible consequences of showing up outside of those opening times or arriving much too late. Their reservation policy is very clearly stated everywhere and is basically the only policy that allows them to survive. For a place like that to be open to everybody at all times is simply impossible - others have tried and failed. I think it's brave and wonderful that this couple have taken on this endeavour and present a well thought-through approach. Other reviews say the proprietors are hospitable, warm and welcoming, and are known to help out where they can. The bad reviews are only from people that can't wrap their heads around what is needed to keep a special place like this open. Corrour isn't like any other restaurant and knowing exactly how many people will come and when is absolutely crucial for their survival (for example because they'd need to purchase a lot of things they'll have to throw away if nobody comes). Making exceptions will cause more exceptions. I totally understand people's disappointment but at the same time I don't think your reviews are fair - you knew this is a one of kind sort of place and could have easily tried to check the website, make a reservation, etc. Please also note that it isn't the proprietors' responsibility to help out travellers in need. The station is as remote as it gets and going there takes a bit of preparation. If you are stuck there and think there should be toilets and a vending machine - totally understandable, but that's a Scotrail issue, not something the hotel should be held responsible for. They have been known to go out of their way to help people out - but there are limits to what they can do if they want to keep a business going. I know this is not a question, but I really felt the need to express this. Please note that I am not in any way affiliated with Courrour Station House Restaurant/Hotel (I will stay there in May). I'm just somebody that reads other reviews, sees the heartfelt and long responses of the proprietors, has common sense and is sensitive to unfairness.

Description
Hidden away in the Scottish Highlands, Corrour Station House is one of the most remote restaurants in Scotland, as it is only accessible via train or on foot. After being welcomed by a roaring fire, we serve teas, coffees, homebaked goods, soups and filling Scottish-themed meals, including local venison. We cater for a large range of guests including hillwalkers, train enthusiasts and other visitors to this beautiful location. We are open 7 days a week, from 8.30am till 9pm, throughout the months of April to October. Closing date for the 2016 season is the 31st October. We will re-open in March 2017.
