Keith and Dufftown Heritage Railway Trains




The Keith and Dufftown Railway was opened in 2001. It is an 11 mile track which takes passengers through some of the most stunning scenery of Aberdeenshire. Passengers are often rewarded with glimpses of Scotland's wildlife such as deer and foxes and birds such as herons and buzzards. It takes you through the heart of Aberdeenshire's whisky trail and you can see distilleries such as the Chivas Brothers Strathisla Distillery, Glenfiddich Distillery and the Strathmill Distillery. Passengers can also see stunning views of Drummuir Castle and a rare view of the Glenfiddich Viaduct.

The railway, the trains and the cafe are all run and maintained by a team of volunteers.

The train is called The Spirit of Speyside, a 1959 diesel multiple unit that can carry 117 seated passengers. It takes passengers to and from Keith, Drummuir and Dufftown.

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.



At Dufftown there is a converted electrification stores vehicle which has been elegantly turned into a Cafeteria Car which sells a range of refreshing drinks and snacks.
