Description

This was a two platform station. The main station building was on the eastbound platform. The station replaced the Portsoy [1st] terminus when the line was extended west to form the Moray Coast Railway.

The Loch of Soy was partly filled in at the south end to give land for the station.

The loop was taken out before closure, the westbound line lifted and station building and town side line left in place.

The station building still stands and the platforms have been landscaped.
