Remote Scots restaurant made famous by Trainspotting wants chef for summer job

A remote Scots restaurant made famous by Ewan McGregor’s rant about being Scottish in the film Trainspotting is searching for a chef to join their team.

The restaurant based at Corrour Station on the stunning West Highland Line is offering one lucky culinary expert the chance to work at the remote train station for the summer.

The station is only accessible via train or by a 20-mile walk.

The ideal candidate is someone who loves the outdoors and is prepared to work in a busy kitchen that serves a steady stream of walkers and hikers passing through on their way to bag one of the many Munros in the surrounding area.

The summer season runs from mid-May until the end of October, with the station restaurant open from around 8.30am to around the time when the last train departs at 9.20pm.

The exciting role will entail cooking breakfasts, lunch and dinners for the station’s B & B guests as well as the general public, and though previous experience in a busy kitchen isn’t a must, the Corrour team say it would help.

Those worried about a long commute should they land the job, needn’t worry as the job comes with accommodation.

Serving up homemade Scottish fare, they offer a range of home baking, soups, sandwiches, and a small selection of main meals.

Built by the West Highland Railway in the 1890s on the line linking Glasgow and Fort William, the station is part of the Corrour Estate with the Station House described as the UK’s ‘remotest restaurants with rooms’.

It’s also the UK’s highest line mainline station at 1,300 feet above sea level and has become famous with film fans thanks to starring as the backdrop for Ewan McGregor’s character Renton’s famous “it’s s***e being Scottish” rant in the film Trainspotting.

Posting on Twitter, the Corrour team wrote: “We are looking for a cook/chef to join our small team from mid-May until the end of October. Accommodation provided, perfect place if you love the outdoors.”

They added that those looking for more information on the role or to apply please send your CV and covering letter to [email protected]
