History

Opened by the Strathspey Railway (GNoSR), it was absorbed by the Great North of Scotland Railway. Then station passed on to the London and North Eastern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. Passing to the Scottish Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948, it was then closed by the British Railways Board. The station is on the route of the Speyside Way long distance path and has been restored as a private dwelling with an external appearance close to that of the original Great North of Scotland design. A restored carriage body built at the Inverurie works in 1916 stands behind the platform.

A private 1.5 mile railway line ran from the station yard to Balmenach Distillery, opening in 1897 and closing in 1968. It also closed from 1941 to 1947 when the distillery re-opened following expansion. The Barclay 'pug' locomotive 'Balmenach' which worked the line is now preserved at Boat of Garten on the Strathspey Railway.
