The Keith and Dufftown Railway is an eleven mile line linking the World’s Malt Whisky Capital, Dufftown, to the historic town of Keith where there are three more distilleries, Strathmill, Glenkeith and Strathisla.
On Whisky Festival weekends passengers can enjoy a dram on board.
That’s why we’re called ‘The Whisky Line’
These are our scheduled services and timetables.

Our new season starts very soon!
So if you’re ever unsure of what to do over a weekend then get ready for the 28th March 2020.
The guard will blow the whistle and off you’ll go in our dear old 1960s style carriages with nice comfortable seats and a friendly welcome from our train crews. You will be travelling at a leisurely pace through some of the most beautiful scenery in the north-east. We share our track with many of the local wildlife, lambs in the spring and herons looking for fish along the beautiful river Isla.
Hey watch out for that deer!! There she goes leaping over the rails just in front of us.
You can join the train either at Keith Town Station or Dufftown – see the timetable.
Note Keith has 2 stations, ScotRail Keith station and our KDRA Keith Town station.
We are just off the A96 near the church and opposite ‘Bargain buys’. Look out for our signs!
We usually have plenty of seats on our scheduled services but if you are a group of ten or more it may be wise to make a group booking. – See the foot of our events page.
