History

The station was opened on 24 May 1860,[1] originally as part of the Maybole and Girvan Railway (worked and later owned by the Glasgow and South Western Railway). The station replaced the original Maybole station,[1] which was the original terminus of the Ayr and Maybole Junction Railway.

The station was originally a two side platform station rebuilt in 1880,[2] with the two-storey main offices on the down platform, and a large single-storey building with glazed awning on the up platform.[2] When the line was singled in 1973 the northbound platform was removed and the building demolished. The down platform and main building remain. part of which is a local convenience store and part used by Network Rail.
