This is an island platform station. It retains the original single storey platform building with glazed canopies, typical of the Cathcart District Railway. The building has been renovated and canopies re-glazed on several occasions.

Access is by steps from Niddrie Road and Victoria Road. The Niddrie Road approach carries along the trackbed by a fenced footway for a little distance before reaching the platform.

To the north is Pollokshields East station and to the south is Crosshill station.

The station had a small signal box on the island platform, at the north end of the station building. It closed in 1961, replaced by Cathcart Power Box and Muirhouse Power Box.

When opened the station was not hemmed in by housing. The land on either side of the line, to its north and south, was undeveloped.
