Boat of Insh (1863-1871)
Opened on the Inverness and Perth Junction Railway.
This is a passing loop, formerly a station, to the south (and controlled by) Aviemore.
It was a two platform station with a passing loop and goods yard at the north end, served from a goods loop. The main station building was on the northbound platform.
When first opened it was a single platform station without loop. The former northbound platform was the original.
The station building remains standing, although the timber portion has been lost being replaced by a switchroom. The station building is in use as a house. Beside this are railway cottages.
To the east is Kincraig Bridge which replaced Boat of Inch, the former ferry crossing of the River Spey.
