History edit

The station was opened on 1 June 1895 by the Caledonian Railway. On the platform was the station building and opposite of it was a pair of sidings. Despite its name, the station was situated 1.5 miles away from the village, instead being situated closer to Tannadyce House. The remote location meant that patronage was low, so it closed on 4 August 1952.[1]
