Opened on the Inverness and Perth Junction Railway.
This was a two platform station. The disused platforms, and a disused signal box, remain intact. The station building was dismantled and re-located to Aviemore Speyside. In recent years the station cottages, which were derelict, have been renovated.
The box controlled the station and, after 1966, a passing loop during the period (1966-1978) that the line between Dalwhinnie and Blair Atholl reverted to single track with passing loops.
This was the highest main line station in Britain at 1,405 feet.
Glen Garry runs south from Dalnaspidal towards Loch Rannoch.
