The yard is situated 3/4 mile to the east of Inverness and lies beside the main lines to Aberdeen and Perth.
Railway type and traffic
Outside of the usual DMU worked services you would usually see class 66s and 67s. On a Wednesday freightliner operate a cement service to Inverness which will have a 66/6 working it. There is also the Royal Scotsman which runs throughout the summer months and various charters which are run by SRPS, Pathfinder and Hertfordshire. But once a year Grampian Railtours operate an Aberdeen-Kyle Of Lochalsh charter.
