Description

This was a two platform station to the west of Monkton itself. The Station Road between the two has been re-routed with the construction of Prestwick Airport's runway. There was a goods yard on the east side, approached from the north, or from the south via a reversing spur. The main station building was on the east side.

The Monkton Oil Sidings opened on the west side of the line, serving Prestwick Airport.

Glasgow Prestwick Airport station, built on the site of the former Monkton Junction, opened to the south in 1994.
