The station building was built by the Highland Railway, and designed by engineer Murdoch Paterson. It was B-listed by Historic Scotland in 1986. The building was occupied by a restaurant named "Off The Rails" however it is no longer in business as a restaurant. The building was completely renovated during 2009/2010 and is now a privately owned self-catering holiday cottage.
