Fortrose Branch (Highland Railway)
Fortrose Branch, also known as the Black Isle Railway is an historic railway in Scotland.
Authorisation was obtained on 4 July 1890 to build a 15.75 mile (25 km) branch line from Muir of Ord to Rosemarkie; however the line never proceeded beyond Fortrose.
The railway had a station at Rosehaugh, near Avoch. This was a private halt serving the Rosehaugh estate, then owned by James Douglas Fletcher.
Connections to other lines
The line is closed.
The only remaining station building is at Redcastle.
