The station was opened as Inverkeillor on 1 May 1883 by the North British, Arbroath and Montrose Railway. The line had opened for goods on 1 March but required a bridge to be rebuilt before it could be used for passenger trains. By 1896 the station had become Inverkeilor.[1]

To the northwest was the goods yard.[2]

The station closed to both passengers and goods traffic on 22 September 1930.[3] The signal box remains.[4]

Despite being closed the station was host to a LNER camping coach from 1936 to 1939. Campers were advised to take the bus from either Arbroath or Montrose.[5]
