Opened on the Kilsyth and Bonnybridge Railway.


This was a single platform station with no passing loop. The platform was on the south side of the line and there was a small station building. It was crossed at the west end by Station Road. There was a goods yard at the east end, with a siding approached from the east. To the north was Knowehead Colliery with sidings served from the east.

The station was not in Dennyloanhead itself, but further west at Longcroft.
