It was originally a private station for the nearby Arisaig House but was open to the public from 6 September 1965. It is currently a request stop.
By the later part of the century its main users were local school children who went to school at Lochaber High just outside Fort William.
The derelict station house was sold in the 1980s and is now a private holiday home but the station platform is still railway property with a bus shelter type shelter providing rudimentary cover from the rain.
There are four trains per day to Mallaig on Monday to Saturday, and three trains on Sunday in summer but just one in the winter months.
In the opposite direction, there are three through trains per day to Glasgow Queen Street (via Fort William) and one train per day to Fort William with a connecting train to Glasgow, Edinburgh and London Euston. On Sunday there are two Glasgow trains and one to Fort William in summer, but just one Glasgow train in the winter.
