Lines Served

This is a busy through station on the lines between Edinburgh, the Fife Circle, Aberdeen, Dunblane, Inverness and Glasgow.


There are five platforms running approximately east/west, numbered 0 to 4 from the north. Platforms 0 - 1 and 2 - 3 are island platforms, whilst platform 4 is a separate platform along the south side of the station.

The former bridge has been replaced with a significant concourse which bridges the tracks, about in the middle of the platforms, which have been extended eastwards.

The steps to each group of platforms are from the west side of the concourse, with the lifts sited a short distance east of the top of the steps. There are single escalators on the east side of the concourse, at the time of our survey, the escalators to platforms 0 - 1 and 2 - 3 were upwards whilst the escalator to platform 4 was downwards.

The gate line (approximately north/south) divides the concourse. The area outside the gates includes a new travel centre in the northwest corner. The former entrance to the station has been retained, whilst new entrance doors have been built to your right (northwest) of the original entrance.


There is lift, stairs and escalator access through this station. We therefore believe the station is accessible to Guide Dog and wheelchair users.
