Aberfeldy railway station served the village of Aberfeldy in Scotland. The station was the terminus of the branch line from Ballinluig. The station had a very uneventful history, the other main dates being the line from Ballinluig being closed to freight in March 1965, and then passengers in May 1965.

HistoryEdit

Opened by the Inverness and Perth Junction Railway, and absorbed into the Highland Railway, it became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway during the Grouping of 1923. Passing on to the Scottish Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948, it was then closed by the British Railways Board.

The station had been the location of a Camping coach.
