Description

This terminus was located close to the shore to the south east of Inverbervie. It had a single platform, on the west side of a loop, and a goods yard on the east side, approached, like the passenger station, from the south.

There was a carriage siding off the loop, approached by reversing from the platform. A locomotive shed was reached from the goods yard and loop line at the south end of the station, on the east side. The shed was reached by reversing from the turntable.

Hallgreen Castle stands to the south of the site, overlooking the station and Bervie Bay where the Bervie Water reaches the sea.

The Kirk Burn carpark is the site of the goods yard, the passenger station site is backed by Hallgreen Road. A railway gatepost still stands by the station site entry, now a footpath.

Local
