Dingwall

Opened: 11th June, 1862.

Dingwall Station is of substantial size, with long platforms and large staffed station building. There was a goods yard to the south-west, though only a single siding now remains next to a loading bank. At the north end of the station is a road overbridge, beyond which there was formerly a bay platform. To the south of the bridge there were three platforms. Only the 'Down' and 'Up' main platforms are now in use. In 1956 there was a siding for Scottish Oils and Shell-Mex Ltd. Dingwall North and Dingwall South signal boxes have been demolished.
