About The Whisky Line - Keith & Dufftown Railway
The Keith and Dufftown railway is one of the most Northerly preserved railways in the country, and one of the longest and most scenic. With over 10 miles of line your journey takes you from Dufftown station, past the Glenfiddich distillery and over the famous Glenfidich viaduct. You then travel up the long climb called parkmore hill which is surrounded by spectacular scenery up into the mountains, At the top you pass along the banks of Loch Park, a mile long resevoir only properly viewed from the railway with its spectacular wildlife. Then past Drummuir castle and on to Drummuir station, And that's only half way....

Out of this world hospitality, as Mike took us for a guided tour around the yard. Made my son’s holiday getting to start one of the diesels and wander around. My wife enjoyed some tea and a bite to eat at the cafe whilst we wandered around the yard.

We visited the cafe today, ( The sidlings) and it was a great experience. We had not booked , due to Covid, but a table became available , due to someone leaving. We only had tea and cakes but we all had home made cakes. The gluten free chocolate cake was not over sweet and absolutely delicious I would highly recommend it for coeliacs. The other half had the coffee cake, which he said it was the best he had tasted for a long time. Mum had a homemade Bakewell tart which was super. This is a place to visit and obviously with the railway closed, it is still worth that stop. The Staff were so pleasant and kind and very pleasant and I thank them for their help. We loved our visit and have booked for next week, for lunch, cannot wait. Good venue for celiac .

This was our third trip on the Santa train and we couldn't have enjoyed it more ! It's becoming a family tradition and is a great start to our festive celebrations. This year there was the addition of non-alcoholic mulled wine (delicious) and mince pies - what a treat ! We loved it and enjoyed it all so much we searched out the mulled wine for our own Christmas to take care of the drivers ! Our son and his wife and children travel up from the south west of Glasgow and we come from Inverness with our daughter and her family. The children absolutely love it and Santa is just fantastic ! Our very excitable younger grandson still can't contain himself and thoroughly enjoys the whole process - the presents are fabulous and the children loved the choices this year. Looking forward next year already !

We had a lovely trip on the Santa train from Keith on 21st December with our two wee boys. . Everything is very well organised and the elves are super efficient with regard to getting passengers boarded, seated and into see Santa. Our boys didn’t feel they were waiting to see Santa because they were so excited by being on the train. Seeing Santa in his grotto was lovely as was the ‘north pole’ stop. The elves were great even when our youngest was trying to pull bits off the grotto and one of them produced a screw driver to get the bigger one’s new tractor out of its packaging. It was a great afternoon and hopefully we will do it again.
