It was formerly a four platform station - a bay existed at the north end on the west side, initially for the Kyle of Lochalsh line but later for the short branch to Strathpeffer. The up platform became an island platform with an extra face on the east side as traffic increased. To the south of the station was a goods yard and locomotive shed.
