Description

This station was located at Bush, south of Lauriston Castle. The station had a passing loop, two slightly staggered platforms (the west/southbound platform being slightly to the east) and a goods yard at the east end of the station, on the north side of the line approached from the west.

The station site is now a caravan park. A railway cottage, which stood immediately to the northeast of the station building, remains standing.

Charles Alexander, of Charles Alexander Transport, built his house at Bush using the stone taken from the demolition of Cruden Bay Hotel.
