About Us

Although our involvement with the railway is diverse, one thing unites the group that makes up the Westie, and that’s our passion to make the West Highland Line work for our community. Born of a steering group of individuals resident from Mallaig to Crianlarich, our group found its feet and became one of the first constituted & recognised CRP’s in Scotland. Now our board consists of representatives from the communities around stations along our line, and is in regular communication with all major stakeholders in our railways success.

The Westie exists to serve its community first, through our project to establish the needs of local railway users.

We have now moved on to acting on those community needs with a series of projects. You can find out more about them at the relevant pages by following the projects and news button in the navigation bar at the top of the page.

We want to keep our roads less busy and our air less polluted. See our Projects.
