The station was constructed with two platforms and was an electric token block post, working to Glenfinnan on one side and Arisaig on the other, until the Up loop was lifted in 1966. The loops were lengthened during the Second World War and a new brick signal box erected, the foundations of which now can still be seen at the Arisaig end of the single platform now in use. The original station buildings were of a similar design to those at Glenfinnan and Arisaig but fell into disrepair after de-staffing and were demolished during the 1970s.
