Opened on the Caledonian Railway.
This was a two platform station on an east-west alignment. The southbound (up) platform was to the north. The main station building was on the southbound platform. This was a crow-stepped gable building typical of the line.
There was a goods yard on the north side, with a reversing spur reached by reversal from the southbound platform. The yard was slightly expanded by 1899, and a bay siding laid into the east end of the southbound platform added.
The station was west of the town, around 2/3 of a mile.
The site is now a railway access point. The main building survived electrification but is now gone.
