Description

This is a small single platform near the Falls of Cruachan and Cruachan Hydro Electric Scheme visitor's centre.

The platform is on the south side of the line and set above Loch Awe on the hillside in the area of line protected by rockfall signals.

The station was closed between 1965 and 1988, yet somehow the station waiting room survived. It still stood at re-opening, out of use, but no longer exists having been replaced with a modern shelter.
