Scotland’s famous Trainspotting station is looking for restaurant staff to work this summer
The past two years have been a lot for everyone and although the remaining covid restrictions will be lifted by the end of March, some travel restrictions will remain in place.
So if you’re looking to get away from Glasgow – even though we’re a pretty good city – you might be interested in a great opportunity close to home – and one that requires you to stay away from home for little more than a few weeks.
And bonus points if you’re a Trainspotting fan because you might recognize it after it’s been “immortalized in cinematic history due to its use as a location” according to the BBC.
Corrour Station House, accessible only by train – unless you want to hike 20 miles – offers two people a unique opportunity this summer.
According to Edinburgh Live, the little station is home to one of Scotland’s most remote restaurants, popular with walkers and hikers.

Corrour is said to be the highest station in the UK, located on the beautiful West Highland Line.
Their website reads: “We warmly welcome visitors with a crackling fire, comfy sofas and good homemade food. Children and dogs are especially welcome, and we provide games, books and maps to play to amuse young and old.”
It is currently closed, but they hope to reopen on March 25 and remain so until the end of October and will serve seven days a week.
His two new staff will join a small team and have to live on site for the entire season earning an “excellent rate of pay”.
Director Shona Griffiths, who has worked at the station since 2014, said the roles would be ideal for a pair of friends, a couple or people who don’t mind hard work and can handle life in a remote location to fill roles and help run the Station House restaurant.
Describing it as a “very unique experience” that is a great way to “enjoy the outdoors in Scotland”, Shona said successful applicants will be expected to help with the housekeeping of their small B&B, in front of the house in the restaurant, doing cafes and even potentially some kitchen work if they are interested.
