HistoryEdit

The station was opened as Cawdor on 1 December 1855 by the Inverness and Nairn Railway. Its name was changed to Kildrummie on 1 January 1857. It was a short-lived station, only being open for just over two years, closing on 1 January 1858, although it was still in the timetable for the rest of January of the same year. It continued as a private platform for the Earl of Cawdor and its name was changed to Kildrummie Platform. This continued until 1880.[1] Nothing remains.[2]
