(Location cited as NS 297 043) Kilkerran Station, opened 1860 by the Maybole & Girvan Railway. Formerly a 2-platform through station, with the main offices on the down platform. These were in a 1- and 2-storey rubble building, on an L plan, incorporating a dwellinghouse, with crow-stepped gables.

The rubble goods shed also survives, as does the signal-box of typical Glasgow and South Western wooden pattern.
