Description

This was a two platform station about a mile from Carnwath, to the east, by road.

The main station building was on the southbound platform and there was a goods yard on the west side, approached from the north. The goods yard also served a sand pit. The signal box was at the north end of the southbound platform.

The box closed in 1965 and station closed to passengers in 1966.

Little remains of the station today. The goods yard is now a council depot.

The station is not far from Carstairs station where the lines from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Carlisle meet.
