This intermediate station on the Castle Douglas - Stranraer (Challoch Junction) portion (forming the Portpatrick and Wigtownshire Joint Rly) of the Dumfries - Stranraer 'Port Road' was opened (by the Portpatrick Rly) on 12 March 1861. It closed to regular passenger traffic (with the line as a whole) on 14 June 1965.
