The station was opened as Ferniegair on 1 December 1866 as a terminus for trains approaching from the south on the Caledonian Railway's Coalburn Branch. Passengers for Glasgow had to transfer to Hamilton by coach. It was re-built and re-located as a through station on 2 October 1876, with trains continuing to Motherwell railway station on the Clydesdale Junction Railway. The Caledonian Railway closed the station on 1 January 1917.
From the re-opening in December 2005, trains ran on Mondays and Saturdays every 30 minutes north west to Dalmuir via Singer and south to Larkhall. A trial (for one year) Sunday service commenced from December 2007 with an hourly service in each direction, and due to high uptake was made permanent in December 2008.
