19 August 1870  Station opened as Strathpeffer
3 June 1885  Name changed to Achterneed

Achterneed railway station was a railway station serving Strathpeffer and located on the Kyle of Lochalsh Line, in Wester Ross, Scotland.


Opened in 1870, the station was sited two miles NNE of Strathpeffer between Dingwall and Garve. It was initially named Strathpeffer but the name was changed to avoid passenger confusion when the branch line to that town from Dingwall opened in 1885.

The station was opened by the Dingwall and Skye Railway, but operated from the outset by the Highland Railway. Taken into the London, Midland and Scottish Railway during the Grouping of 1923, the line then passed on to the Scottish Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.

The station was closed by the British Railways Board in 1965.
