Description

This is a two platform station. The booking office was at street level on the bridge over the line to the east of the station, on Mill Road. Each platform had a waiting room. No buildings survive.

The goods yard was to the east, on the south side of the line and approached from the east. It was originally served from a connection at Hawick Street but, with the opening of Rothesay Dock and its yards, access from a yard.

To the south of the passenger station was a railway cottage, now gone.
