Opened on 21 May 1866 by the Crieff and Methven Junction Railway, then operated by the Caledonian Railway,[1] it became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway during the Grouping of 1923. Passing on to the Scottish Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948, the station was closed to passenger traffic by British Railways on 1 October 1951.

For several years following closure the Station Master's house was rented out as holiday accommodation in the Summer. It is now a private house.[citation needed]
