Opened on the Great North of Scotland Railway.

Open on the Aberdeen to Inverness.


Description

This is a two platform station.

There is a modern station building on the westbound platform. On the east side of the line is an extensive goods yard, served from the south. Latterly the yard dealt with timber traffic but in the past it saw potato traffic.

The station once had a timber trainshed. This was cut back and then removed.

This was the first terminus of the line from Aberdeen Kittybrewster. In the early days there was a locomotive shed at the south end of the station.

The signal box has been separated from the station by the A96 Huntly by-pass.

In 1905 the Great North of Scotland Railway introduced a connecting bus service from the station to Aberchirder. This extended on to Banff using routes via Alvah or Cornhill.
