Invergowrie railway station is an unstaffed halt which serves the village of Invergowrie west of the city of Dundee, Scotland on the north bank of the Firth of Tay.

It was built by the Dundee and Perth Railway, a constituent company of the Scottish Central Railway and later the Caledonian Railway and opened in 1848. It has been threatened with closure on several occasions since the 1950s, narrowly avoiding the Beeching Axe and being reprieved again in 1985 (unlike neighbouring Errol, which closed in September that year).
