Description

This is a two platform station. The main station building is on the up platform and is stone-built with a glass canopy over the platform. The signal box ('C' listed) still stands. Station cottages stand nearby.

This station was the terminus of the line from 1877 until 1880 when the extension to Oban opened. A locomotive shed Dalmally Shed was on the south side of the station, approached from the west. This survived the line's extension.

A granite heron fountain adorns the westbound platform.

Heartfelt by Liz , a studio focused on and offering workshops on traditional skills as weaving, spinning and dyeing, is based in the station.

Also at the station is Dalmally Station Accommodation .
