This was the terminus of a short branch from Burnmouth serving the fishing port of Eyemouth. The station was on the west bank of the Eye Water at a cramped location with the main road to Eyemouth (Victoria Road) higher above and to the west and a drop off down to the Eye Water to the east. Eyemouth Harbour was just to the north where the Eye Water meets the sea.
