Description

This was a two platform station. At first, when a terminus, a platform and station building were not provided on the up side. After extension a second platform and building were provided.

A triangle of lines from the goods yard, south of the line approached from the east, allowed locomotive turning.

The signal box was accidentally burned down in 1951 and replaced with a hut. The box was to close in 1961, becoming a one-engine-in-steam location from Crieff Signalbox. Station closure came with the end of the Gleneagles-Crieff-Comrie passenger service in 1964.

Portions of platform remain, particularly under the road bridge at the west end. The site is now a caravan park. Comrie Holiday Park
