SPEND THE DAY WITH US

The Leadhills and Wanlockhead Railway is Britain's highest narrow gauge railway. Operated and managed by a dedicated team of volunteers the railway welcomes you every weekend during the summer months from EASTER WEEKEND until the LAST WEEKEND in September. We also operate SPECIAL EVENTS outwith these times and we hope that you can join us whenever you can so please keep an eye on our website to see whats on.

The area around Leadhills and Lowther Hills is well worth exploring and is known as 'God's Treasure House in Scotland' because of the vast number of mineral deposits found there. From lead, zinc and copper to silver and gold, a fascinating glimpse into the area's mining and industrial heritage is on display at the Museum of Lead Mining in Wanlockhead. A real hidden treasure! Gold panning courses are run throughout the summer and can be booked through the museum.
