This was a short lived terminus by the shore and two piers in Findhorn. There was a wooden station building on the south side of the B9011 where the line finished. To the north of this, across the road, was a railway owned warehouse and office. The goods line passed by the station, on its south side, continuing to the two piers. The east pier was served by turnplate.
