Opened on the Inverness and Ross-shire Railway.

Open on the Far North Line.


Description

This is a single platform station.

The station started with a single platform, the present platform. A second platform was later provided with the addition of an up loop. (Often described as having three platforms, this must be a confusion with the Dalmore branch).

There was a goods yard to the west, on the north side of the line, accessed from the east. From the west side of the station a branch ran past the south side of the station to Dalmore Distillery.

The station was closed in 1960 but reopened in 1973. At reopening the station building still stood (similar to that at Ardgay).

The loop was removed and later the goods yard and Dalmore branch.
