First time here since the change of management and its just brilliant. The vast majority of people who pass through Corrour Station are walkers so its fantastic that they are now made so welcome betit for a coffee, a beer or a meal. Food is fantastic but the key is the staff...they are just so helpful and friendly. Keep up... More

We travelled to the Carrour Station House by train from Fort William (avoiding the 20 mile walk from the road!) on a gloriously sunny evening and had an excellent meal in the middle of no-where - staff very friendly and helpful - nothing too much bother. They've had a rough few weeks trying to provide meals for travellers with the... More

I had some exceptionally good macaroni cheese here after a couple of days eating soggy sandwiches out on the moor. A wonderful wee gem with simple but really well cooked dishes in a spectacular location. The food doesn't have to be that good to get tired walkers to come but they go the extra mile anyway. My kind of place.... More

After a long day walking and 40 years absence Retirement brings back the hankering to return to what was the station house so what a winner to find this little gem. Staff v friendly and welcoming menu varied for all snacks to meal. Coffee to dream about. Will not be 40 years before the next visit. Well done.

Called in to drop off a celebration cake and say hello en route to Beinn na Lap to complete my round of Munro's. On our return several hours later 50 of us from Blantyre Hillwalking Club, friends and family were delighted with the service and surroundings not to mention the soups and sandwiches that had been arranged to keep us...

Unless you are staying in one of the Holiday lets on the Corrour Estate the only way to reach the restaurant is by train or a very long hike in through the mountains. Limited trains but possible to time them so that you can spend ample time to enjoy a nice meal and a few drams. Logistically this is well... More

This was a great place to stop and have a bit to eat after a long day on the hills. The staff was great and they made you very welcome. We had a friend ho was doing his last Monroe and they had hot soup and snacks. And most importantly they had cold beer. This is a place you can't... More

Very friendly staff - very helpful, was able to get some tap water and recharge my powerbank before heading back out into wilderness. Also able to go back and had an excellent beer before catching train back to Glasgow.

This restaurant is bit bit difficult to get to, but that adds to its charm and character. Only accessible on foot, bike or by train on the West Highland line, the Corrour station house is a lovely little oasis in the Scottish highlands. Stopped here for dinner after a day of hiking around Loch Ossian (we were staying at the... 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.
