Helmsdale had been linked to Inverness by rail in 1870. The Sutherland and Caithness Railway was formed in 1871 to carry the railway onward to Thurso and Wick, by a route which took it through Strath Ullie. The line opened on 28 July 1874 and included a station at Kinbrace.
In the May 2017 timetable, there are four trains north to Wick via Thurso and three south to Inverness from Mon-Sat (if requested). There is a fourth Wick to Inverness service, but this is not advertised to stop at Kinbrace. There is a single train each way on Sundays.
