Ness Islands Railway Re-development Fund

We are fundraising to support the re-development of Ness Islands Railway. We will spend any donations on repairing the recently vandalised bridge and buying another engine to ensure this much-loved attraction keeps running for many more years.

About the charity

Highland Hospice

Highland Hospice provides specialist care and support to terminally ill patients and their families in the Highlands. We have an In Patient Unit in Inverness, provide day care across the region and offer bereavement counselling for relatives. We aim to provide dignity when time matters most.

Story

Ness Islands Railway was established in 1983 and operated as a successful family-owned business for 36 years. During this time the Railway has become a much-loved feature of Inverness bringing smiles to the faces of thousands of passengers every year. The children that rode the train in it's first few years are parents now and love to come back with their own children.

In April 2019, the Railway was bought by Highland Hospice to run as a social enterprise. Highland Hospice provides palliative and end-of-life care and offers bereavement support across the Highlands. The Hospice also works in partnership with local communities to tackle social isolation and loneliness and to support people living at home with a life-limiting condition.  All surplus funds from Ness Islands Railway support the delivery of Highland Hospice services.

In order to ensure the Railway remains open for another three decades or more we need to fully refurbish the vandalised bridge and also buy a second petrol driven engine as stand-by. We would also like to landscape and re-plant the grounds and replace the kiosk to further improve the passenger experience.

All aboard for Highland Hospice
