Description

This was a three platform station and junction. There were two platforms on the route between Elgin East and Keith via Dufftown and one platform on the Strathspey route to Boat of Garten. To the north on the Elgin route the line almost immediately crossed the Craigellachie Bridge to reach Dandaleith.

There was a large goods yard on the west (Strathspey) side of the station, approached from the south.

The station site is now partly absorbed into the enlarged A95 on the east side, the platforms have not survived there. The platform on the Strathspey line has survived and the line is the Strathspey Way footpath which has a car park on the station site.
