Opened on the Portpatrick Railway.
This two platform station was in the north of Glenluce, about a mile east of the GlenLuce Viaduct (or Luce Viaduct). There was a goods yard on the south side, approached from the west. The station was on a loop, the line being single track. The main station building was on the westbound platform.
There was a tall timber signal box dating from 1890 at the west end of the eastbound platform.
The station, box and line closed in 1965.
The opening of the railway severed North Street and a new road alignment was opened to the east crossing the line with a bridge.
The road bridge remains today but the station site is now occupied by housing.
The disused Glenluce Viaduct is to the west, between the former station and Challoch Junction where the line from Girvan today comes from the north before continuing, using the former Portpatrick Railway, to Stranraer.
Glenluce Abbey is around 1.5 miles north west of the former station.
