One of northern Scotland's original stations, Alness Railway Station serves the town of Alness along the Far North Line. Originally constructed as part of the conglomerate Highlands Railway, Alness served the highlands and north Scotland. The original station was closed in 1960 and remained vacant for thirteen years. Following a significant population rise in the area, the present Alness station was opened to serve destinations both north and south of Alness, although physically reduced in size from its original capacity. The station has a single platform and is unmanned, with a small shelter available. Passengers may still glimpse the original station platforms on either side of the rails.

Typical Mondays through Saturdays service sees southbound trains from Alness towards Inverness depart every two hours, with northbound service towards Wick operating four times a day. Sunday service sees five trains to Inverness, three trains to Tain, and one train each to Invergordon and Wick.
