Opened on the Kirriemuir Branch (Scottish Midland Junction Railway).
This was a terminus to the east of Kirriemuir. Latterly it had a main platform, on the north side of the line, with a loop and a short bay on the north side. The sidings were on either side of the line and there was a locomotive shed at the east end Kirriemuir Shed.
The arrival of the railway encouraged the opening of a Linen Works alongside the station, to the west. There was also some house building.
The station was rebuilt before 1900. The original station being on a smaller scale on the same site.
The station has been largely obliterated by subsequent house building, however the linen works building remains and a loading bank on the south side of the former station remains.
