Opened on the Anstruther and St Andrews Railway.
This two platform station was the principal station between St Andrews and Anstruther [2nd]. The building was of a larger design to the rest of the line. It was on the western edge of Crail. The building was on on the southbound - town side - platform.
There was a goods yard on the east side, approached from the north.
Initially there was no loop, the southbound platform being the original platform. The loop was installed in 1898.
The line closed in 1965 to the north and 1966 to the south, being retained briefly for goods.
Portions of platform and the main station building survive. Much of the station site became the East Neuk Water Garden Centre (since closed?)
