Dingwall Railway Station


(Inbhir Pheofharain)

Dingwall Railway Station (Gael: Inbhir Pheofharain) lies on the edge of the town, a quarter-mile (0.5 km) southeast of the centre. It opened in 1862 as the northern terminus of the Inverness & Ross-shire Railway. The following year the line was extended to Invergordon, while a branch which was the Dingwall and Skye railway opened to Stromeferry in 1870. The traditionally-styled station buildings were the work of the Highland Railway's chief engineer Murdoch Paterson (1826 - 98) in 1886. Operated by ScotRail, Dingwall Railway Station is staffed part-time and is used by around 100,000 passengers per annum (2014). It is preceded by Conon Bridge Railway Station, 2¼ miles (3.5 km) to the south. The line splits just beyond Dingwall Station, with the next station on the Far North Line being Alness, 10 miles (16 km) while, on the Kyle of Lochalsh Line, the following station is Garve, 10 miles (16 km) to the west.
