This was a curling platform halt alongside Carsebreck Loch, the Royal Caledonian Curling Pond. It has been variously known as Nethertown, Curling Society's Platform, Curling Pond Halt, Royal Curling Club Platform,Royal Curling Club Station (as indicated on OS maps) and Carsbreck.
There was a building on the southbound platform and Brick House, probably a railwayman's cottage, was not far to the west at a level crossing. A signal box had opened here in 1905. The 'Royal Curling Club Station' appears on the OS map published in 1901 so the opening date of 1910 is doubtful.
The halt was not a regular halt for trains, only operated during bonspiel contests.
The signal box closed in 1941, the halt probably in 1951.
Nothing remains of the platforms.
