Description

This was a two platform to the south west of Grantown-on-Spey. The main station building, the second on the site, had a large glazed canopy and was on the southbound platform, on the town side. There was a goods yard at the south end, east side of the line, approached from the north.

After closure the station survived for a few years but was eventually cleared. The station house still survives.
