Please help us to keep our our beautiful railway line running.
Any donation however small will surely help us through these difficult times.

We want to say Thank You to all of you who have already so generously donated.

The Keith and Dufftown Railway keeps alive an eleven mile line linking the World’s Malt Whisky Capital, Dufftown, with the historic town of Keith.

To travel on the KDR is get to experience the true spirit of this unique part of Scotland. There are the rolling hills, forests, the deep glens, fields of ripening barley, the leaping deer but it is the living stills which provide that aroma pervading the atmosphere all along the track.

Whichever way you travel there are more distilleries. Keith can boast of Strathmill, Glenkeith and Strathisla distilleries. Why not take a tour, have a dram, it’s what it’s all about! Individuals, groups or parties are all welcome.

Volunteers and new members are most welcome.
Why not come and join one of our works teams and help us maintain our railway!

To get in touch please contact our Business Administrator. 

Note to all volunteers:
All Health & Safety rules must be observed when carrying out essential maintenance. 

Please note that we reserve the right to cancel any of our services without prior notice.
