Opened on the Dundee and Forfar Direct Railway.

Description

This was a single platform station, the first north from Broughty Ferry on the direct line to Forfar [2nd].

The platform was on the west side of the line. On the east side was the goods yard, accessed from the south.

The signal box, replaced in 1921 with a larger building on a similar site south of the station building, survived the closure of the line to passengers in 1955 and remained open until the line's closure in 1967.

The site is now housing. However a road bridge, which crossed the line, survives at the north end and an abutment of a bridge survives at the south end - reduced in height in recent years and cunningly used by a car showroom to display a favoured car

To the south the line flew over the Dundee and Arbroath Railway to reach Broughty Junction.
