It was closed on 28 September 1986 as a result of the 1984 Strathclyde Rail Review. The steamer service on Loch Lomond provided by the PS Maid of the Loch had ceased in 1981. Rail services had been provided to connect with sailings.
Following closure the station was demolished and there is now a car park on the site.
