Rosslyn Castle Station had a single platform and a goods yard to the south. The platform and goods loading bank remain. In 1956 there were sidings for Dalmore Mill, and ICI Nobel's gunpowder works. A section of the line was enclosed within an artificial tunnel where it ran by the works in order to prevent sparks from igniting the explosives.
