Thrumster Railway Station was restored in 2011 by Yarrows Heritage Trust this station building was part of the Wick - Lybster light railway. Built in 1903, it was one of five intermediate stations on the line. It found a new use as a post office since the closure of the line in 1943, and this saved the building from becoming derelict. Visit our new dedicated website below to learn more about the history of this rail line.
The Trust bought the station and a small area of ground in front. This area was planned using paintings provided by children from Thrumster Primary School in an art competition. Almost every child included a length of rail in their artwork, and a local firm provided this. The platform was reinstated, and some memorabilia of the station was donated by different local people, including the original sign. Within the grounds is the community woodland with pathways and picnic benches.
