Although named for the village of Banavie, Banavie Railway Station lies in actuality within Caol along one of the West Highland Line's most scenic stretches. Banavie first opened in 1901 alongside the Mallaig Extension Railway, a one-platform station with remarkable views of snow-capped Ben Nevis stretching ahead. Today, westbound trains from Banavie to the next station, Corpach, cross over the Caledonian Canal at Neptune's Staircase, making it a hugely popular line for tourists. Additionally, the station is a short 20-minute walk from Ben Nevis Distillery and about half an hour walking from Old Inverlochy Castle.  

Banavie Station sees approximately four trains a day calling in each direction. Additionally, some historic steam rail services pass through, but do not stop, at Banavie. Three of the four run to and from Glasgow Queen Street, while the remaining train originates and terminates at Fort William. Station facilities at Banavie include waiting rooms, step free access coverage, and a payphone.
