The station was opened on 1 July 1904[1] on the Invergarry and Fort Augustus Railway which had opened 12 months previously. It was a single platform with a waiting shelter and was sometimes known as Invergloy Station. The station was operated by the Highland Railway from 1904 to 1907, and then by the North British Railway until 1922.[2] From 1923 it was operated by the London and North Eastern Railway.

It was expanded with two sidings put in for timber traffic during the First World War.[3]
