This was a single platform station on a single track line. The platform was located on the west side of the line and built in timber and ash (the southern part entirely in timber as it overhung the river). The station building was in timber. The station was reached by a very short approach running south from the east end of the Esk Bridge.
To the north was a siding, accessed from the south, on the east side of the line. The loading bank here still partly exists.
Just to the north Harper's Brae crosses the trackbed by a large masonry bridge.
To the south, on the other side of the river, was the large Esk Mills paper mill.
