Opened on the Muirkirk Branch (Caledonian Railway).
This was a single platform station on the north side of a single track line. The station was south of Glenbuck itself and west of Glenbuck Loch. It was not particularly convenient for Glenbuck, just under a mile away by road.
There was a small goods yard to the west, approached from the east. A quarry siding was to the east, approached from the west.
The timber passenger platform remains, in poor condition.
To the east of the station the line crossed Glenbuck Loch on a causeway.
Glenbuck itself, long associated with coal mining and even the Glenbuck Iron Works, has been obliterated by opencast mining.
