Overview

This is a separate platform along the west side of the station. This platform serves northbound trains towards Inverness, but is sometimes operated bi-directionally to also serve southbound trains towards Perth and beyond. There's no tactile paving along the edge of the platform.

To Reach

There is step-free access from the forecourt and via the ticket office. There is stairs access from platforms 2 - 3 via the bridge.
