Opened on the Inverness and Ross-shire Railway.
Open on the Far North Line.
This is a one platform station, the former southbound platform. The loop line is lifted and northbound platform out of use.
There are sidings to the south end, east side of the line accessed from the south, in use for permanent way. The original station building remains, now in use as a house, on the southbound platform.
When first opened the current platform was the only one, the loop was a later addition.
Fearn's survival may seem surprising as it is in a very rural location, however it is the closest station to Cromarty (via a ferry) and serves a large area to the east with Balintore and Portmahomack in the north. The villages of Fearn and Hill of Fearn are over a mile to the east. Fearn Abbey is in the Fearn village.
