Request stops at Dunrobin Castle Station are being introduced two months earlier than in previous years.
The stops on selected ScotRail services at the station on the Inverness-Thurso-Wick route will begin on Saturday 26 March to coincide with the start of the castle’s opening season.
And, to support the move, a reduced entrance fee is being offered to rail ticket holders – saving more than 16% on the usual adult admission.
Graeme Macfarlan, ScotRail’s marketing manager, said: “We are delighted to be able to meet a suggestion via the Friends of the Far North Line that our calls at the station should come into line with the start of the Castle’s opening season.”
“We are also delighted that there will be a reduction on castle entrance charges for ticket holders, with the normal adult fee of £9 falling to £7.50 and seniors paying £6.50 instead of £7.50.”
