Description

This is a two platform station. There was a single storey main station building at the east end of the eastbound platform.

The goods yard was to the east, on the north side of the line.

The station remains open with a footbridge, dating from around 1900, at its west end. Other than the platforms the footbridge (listed C) is the only remainder of the station. The signal box, at the east end of the westbound platform, closed in 1967.

The station is on the coastal margin with the sea just to the south east. Invergowrie, originally just a few houses, has developed around the station.

To the west Easter Mylnefield Quarry is crossed with a viaduct. Further west are the Kingoodie Quarries.
