Description

This is a two platform in the Newton area of Ayr, to the north of the River Ayr. The station is to the south of Falkland Yard and just north of Newton Junction.

The timber buildings were replaced in the 1950s with a brick structure on the down platform. This still stands but is bricked up. It bears a strong resemblance to the station building at Forres.

The station stands on a triangle of lines which approach Ayr Harbour. There is access to the harbour from the Irvine, Ayr and Mauchline directions.
