Description

This halt was at Burnhead. There was a short passing loop on the line crossing a level crossing.

This was replaced, in 1860, with the new alignment which avoided the Balbeuchly Incline. A new station was required as the connection made with the existing line was to the west of the station.

The old trackbed can be seen as a line of trees, just to the east. The station site is rough ground to the west and ploughed out to the east.
