Membership and Donations

The Friends of the Kyle Line relies on donations from the public and local businesses, without which generosity the organisation would cease to exist. The monies gathered go directly to marketing the line and maintaining the 'Friends' and not to the volunteers who give of their valuable time attending meetings, lobbying councils, rail companies and political bodies, producing printed materials, designing flyers and posters and of course raising awareness generally about the fragility of the Kyle Line.


Any sum of money is welcomely received; school children give a pound of their pocket money and businesses donate cheques of a larger amount.

Artifacts for the museum are also accepted. They should have a railway theme or a historical connection to the Lochalsh area.


Lastly and most importantly you can donate your time and skill. The 'Friends' are always looking for members who can use their training or talent to good use within the organisation. Musicians, architects, politicians, bankers, caterers, shopkeepers and artists are all current members.


To become a Member of Friends of the Kyle Line, you can set up a standing order to donate a minimum of £10 per year by downloading and filling in the membership form (by clicking on the link below).  Once completed, you can either print and post the form or email it back to us using the addresses on the left.
