The station was opened on 22 July 1903.[1] The station was provided with a water column. The company appointed James Morrison as station master.[2] The station was operated by the Highland Railway from 1903 to 1907, and then by the North British Railway until 1922.[3] From 1923 it was operated by the London and North Eastern Railway.

In September 1905, King Edward VII travelled over the line from Spean Bridge to Invergarry with George Cadogan, 5th Earl Cadogan and Countess Cadogan. The station at Invergarry was specially decorated for the occasion.[4] The King was visiting Lord and Lady Burton at Glenquoich Lodge.

The station closed to passenger services on 1 December 1933,[5] although the line remained open for goods traffic until 31 December 1946.

The station is now being restored by the Invergarry and Fort Augustus Railway Museum, and the site includes a short length of track.[6]
