History

Opened as an extension to the Deeside Railway on 2 December 1859, being the terminus until the line to Ballater was opened by the Aboyne and Braemar Railway in 1866. Later to be leased and then part of the Great North of Scotland Railway the station became part of the London and North Eastern Railway during the Grouping of 1923, passing on to the Scottish Region of British Railways during the nationalisation of 1948. It was then closed by the British Railways Board on 28 February 1966.

The station had been the location of a Camping coach.

The site today

The line is now part of the Deeside Way footpath, while the station is home to a range of shops. [1]
