Very soon we are passing J&B's Strathmill distillery
The once busy Strathmill distillery siding lies rusting.
The railway runs through nicely wooded areas
Along with the wooded areas there are also large open areas of green rolling hillsides
Near Towiemore with the start of the Cairngorems (blue mountains) in the distance
To the north of Drummure Station with a nice Strath on the right. Strath is the Gaidhlig of a Plain.
Left: Approaching Drummure Station. The iron-framed building is to be a loco depot
Right: The train comes to a stand at Drummure station
Drummure station looks a sad and deserted place without it's original station buildings
The guard removes a bicycle from the brakevan onto the platform
The elderly passenger/cyclist heads of for a run through the very pleasant scenery in and a round Drummure and plans
to be back in time to catch the train back to Keith just after 2.pm
Rear views from the DMU as it travels in fine country with a rustic railway bridge to add character. Note telegraph pole on the left
Passing the fish farm near Park
The Unit enters an avenue of trees as it winds it's way up to and past Loch Park.
It is virtually impossible to get a clear view of this man-made loch due to the
wealth of trees growing along the railway bank
The driver's mate keeps a good lookout while the passengers enjoy the forward view from the DMU
Picturesque views from the DMU
