This was a two platform to the south west of Grantown-on-Spey. The station was at 737 ft above sea level.
The main station building, the second on the site, had a large glazed canopy and was on the southbound platform, on the town side.
A long siding passed round the rear of the northbound platform, connected at the north end. In the early days it had served a saw mill.
There was a goods yard at the south end, east side of the line, approached from the north. The siding ran to a loading bank and a goods shed was reached by reversal. Opposite the goods yard, on the west side of the loop, was a turntable which was approached from the south .
Until 1952 there were two signal boxes. These opened around 1890. The north box was on the east side of the north end of the loop. Th south box was in the 'V' of the junction between the turntable siding and the loop, opposite the goods yard.
In 1952 the boxes were replaced with a modern brick structure with a flat room which was built on the southbound platform just north of the station building.
The station, box and line closed in 1965.
After closure the station survived for a few years but was eventually cleared. The station house and a loading bank survive.
