Opened on the Inverness and Perth Junction Railway.
Opened on the Aberfeldy Branch (Inverness and Perth Junction Railway).
This was a three platform station with two platforms on either side of the loop and a second face of the northbound platform served the Aberfeldy branch, there being a loop alongside the platform.
The branch platform, opened in 1865, at this former station has been obliterated by subsequent road construction to improve the safety of the junction between the A9 and the A827.
The branch platform was built in timber, with a passing loop and turntable to the south. To the west on the branch were two viaducts, first Ballinluig Viaduct and then, further west, Logierait Viaduct.
After closure to passengers, with the closure of the Aberfeldy Branch, the loop on the mainline was retained until 1985. Signalmen commented that it was a long loop, useful for breaking the single track section from Dunkeld to Pitlochry.
