Opened on the Arbroath and Forfar Railway.
This was a station with two staggered platforms. The northbound platform was north of the level crossing, with the goods yard to the east, served from the north, and the southbound platform to the south of the crossing.
The station was probably build to serve Letham Grange, now a hotel, which is not far off. Colliston is to the west.
The southbound line was lifted before closure.
North of the level crossing is a house, the former station house, and a garden. To the south the trackbed is a footpath or cyclepath and the southbound platform remains.
Letham Grange was not far east of the station. It became the Letham Grange Hotel. Back in 1995 the hotel asked for a page, there being no other mentioning of the name 'Letham Grange' on the internet.
The hotel is not presently open (2018), but the golf course remains. Letham Grange Golf Club
