Station & Service Information
The WHCRP are installing new signage and information for passengers on the Westie.
- Welcoming visitors to each community on the West Highland Line.
- Providing easy-to-grasp and aesthetically pleasing local information.
- Ensuring local input to each station information board.
The first information boards will be mounted at Arisaig, Corrour and Rannoch stations, soon to be followed by Mallaig and Bridge of Orchy. Local artist Felicity Nightingale (www.flickofpaint.co.uk) has been commissioned to provide the artwork for each board, while Corpach-based sign-makers All Round Signs has been commissioned to fabricate the signs – examples of the commissioned artwork can be viewed below.
