On Track and Remote
As the Thurso and Wick-bound train approaches Altnabreac, the most remote station in Britain, you could well imagine that it has crossed an expanse of water to reach an island. It has, in fact, traversed a section of the Flow Country, where roads have never been constructed. Last Saturday this stretch of track featured in the lives of Geoff Marshall and Vicki Pope, who arrived in Wick at the end of a project to visit all 2563 railway stations in England, Wales and Scotland. Follow them on All the Stations.
