Opened on the Portpatrick Railway.
This was a two platform with a loop on a single track line. There was a goods yard at the west end, north side of the line. The main station building was on the eastbound platform.
The loop was extended in 1941 as part of the preparations for the line to Cairnryan opening.
After closure the Station Road, which crossed the east end of the station, was re-aligned in a straight line crossing the station site. The station cottage is now on the north side of this road and large portions of the platforms on the south side. The trackbed is partly infilled.
