Overview

This is a separate platform along the south side of the station, serving trains to Bathgate, Inverness via Stirling, Glasgow Queen Street, Glasgow Central and Dunblane.

There is stairs and lift access between this platform and the concourse, plus a downward escalator.

The Pumpkin Café, waiting room and toilets are almost in the middle of the covered section of this platform.

There is tactile paving along the edge of the platform.

To Reach

Via the Lift

The lift is near the far left-hand (southwest) corner of the concourse as you face away from the gate line. The door is on the opposite side of the lift to the steps, the call button is to your left of the door. Inside the lift, the control panel is to your right, go down to platform level, leave via the other door and turn right onto the platform. We believe you're beside the rear half of the train.

Via the Escalator

As this is normally a departures platform, the single escalator is downwards, from the far left-hand (southeast) corner of the concourse as you face away from the ticket desk. Go down to platform level and turn left onto the platform. We believe you could be behind the rear of the train. We suggest you turn left again and continue to the recess to the lift.

Via the Steps

The top of the steps is in the far left-hand (southwest) corner of the concourse as you face away from the gate line. You go down 11, 11 then 12 steps, going west to platform level then turn right onto the platform. There's tactile paving at the top and bottom of these steps.
