Opened on the Selkirk and Galashiels Railway.
This was a single platform station on the south bank of the Ettrick Water just south of Ettrick Bridge where a road ran east to the Lindean estate. To the west was Lindean Smithy and Lindean Mill, a corn mill with a mill lade. 'Lindean' described more an area than a village or town.
The timber built platform was on the west side of the line north of a level crossing. The on platform building was a small timber building. Behind this, to the north west, was a railway cottage.
There were two sidings, on the east side of the line and approached from the north. That lying next to the line was converted into a loop for several years.
The Ordnance Survey Name Book described it thus
A railway Station, in the line between Selkirk & Galashiels, distant, four Miles from the latter place.
