About The Whisky Line - Keith & Dufftown Railway
The Keith and Dufftown railway is one of the most Northerly preserved railways in the country, and one of the longest and most scenic. With over 10 miles of line your journey takes you from Dufftown station, past the Glenfiddich distillery and over the famous Glenfidich viaduct. You then travel up the long climb called parkmore hill which is surrounded by spectacular scenery up into the mountains, At the top you pass along the banks of Loch Park, a mile long resevoir only properly viewed from the railway with its spectacular wildlife. Then past Drummuir castle and on to Drummuir station, And that's only half way....

We went on the Santa train this afternoon, and the kids, and adults thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The wee one were super excited, and loved meeting Santa, receiving a gift, and singing Christmas songs on the way back. This is all made possible by people who are passionate, about the railway’s history, and they work voluntarily. Would definitely recommend, and will be booking next year,for sure.. Thank you so much for helping us make precious memories to look back on. Susan Proctor

Take the time out to visit this amazing friendly railway. Have a day to remember with the family. Beautiful scenery. Fantastic heritage train. Knowledgeable staff who will go out of their way to make a person's, young or olds, day. 100% BRILLIANT.

This trip was extremely disappointing. Chaotic seating allocations meant I was moved twice. My seat was held together by gaffer tape. We were given sandwiches in a plastic bag. No tables to put them on. No views from the windows due to overgrown vegitation. We got off at Keith, hung around for a while then went back. For what purpose we couldn’t ascertain. Strongly recommend that you avoid.

Out of this world hospitality, as Mike took us for a guided tour around the yard. Made my son’s holiday getting to start one of the diesels and wander around. My wife enjoyed some tea and a bite to eat at the cafe whilst we wandered around the yard.

We visited the cafe today, ( The sidlings) and it was a great experience. We had not booked , due to Covid, but a table became available , due to someone leaving. We only had tea and cakes but we all had home made cakes. The gluten free chocolate cake was not over sweet and absolutely delicious I would highly recommend it for coeliacs. The other half had the coffee cake, which he said it was the best he had tasted for a long time. Mum had a homemade Bakewell tart which was super. This is a place to visit and obviously with the railway closed, it is still worth that stop. The Staff were so pleasant and kind and very pleasant and I thank them for their help. We loved our visit and have booked for next week, for lunch, cannot wait. Good venue for celiac .
