Our Vision

The Iron Road Collective is a group of young performing artists based in the Scottish Highlands. Our creative output is inspired by the Iron Road to the Isles, the railway that connects the remote West Highland communities with each other, and with the commercial and industrial centres of the south. We aim to create a similar connection within these communities - only we do it through creative practice!

Our artists use an array of media to make accessible and engaging work. A sense of place, locality and cultural heritage is always at the heart of what we do.


The Iron Road Collective’s sensitive and sincere performance brought together music and drama in a completely immersive experience and made for a conceptually and culturally significant performance.
