Not to be confused with Culloden Moor Station (NH 7623 4568), for which see NH74NE 41.00. For nearby Railway Cottages, see NH74NE 56.

This intermediate station on the Highland Railway was opened (by the Inverness and Nairn Rly.) on 5 November 1855 as Culloden Station; this line formed part of the Inverness-Aberdeen main line of the Highland and Great North of Scotland Rlys. The station was renamed Allanfearn Station (presumably to avoid confusion with Culloden Moor Station, NH74NE 41.00); it was grouped into the London, Midland and Scottish Rly. in 1923 and closed to regular passenger traffic on 3 May 1965.
