This was a two platform station on the North British Railway's Hamilton Branch. It was one of the more substantial stations on the line having a station building on the northbound platform and shelter on the southbound. It was located in a shallow cutting with a retaining wall on the southbound platform side.

It became the terminus of the line in 1952 when the line south to Hamilton [NB] was closed until closure in 1955. Closed to goods 6th June 1961.

Bothwell Castle Colliery Pits Nos 1 and 2 was located immediately west of the station. Sidings south of the station allowed departures from the colliery to head north to Bothwell Junction to take either the Shettleston or Coatbridge routes.

The southern approach to the station, sidings and colliery access were controlled from Bothwell Station signal box. Further south was the Craighead Viaduct.
