Description

This is a single platform station close to Dunrobin Castle. It is noted for its station building (really a private waiting room). The station was briefly the southern station of the Duke of Sutherland's Private Railway to Helmsdale. Following incorporation of that line into the Highland Railway this became a private station until closure in 1965. The station building is the second, the earlier being more log cabin in nature. The present building was near derelict when repaired for the station re-opening in 1985. A disused bay platform exists to the north of the station, with a disconnected track being recently laid into it. A carriage shed existed north of the station, being removed in the late 80s/early 90s.
