Location

The station is a few metres east of the point where Glenduffhill Road (north then east) passes under the tracks and on the north side of Barrachnie Crescent (east/west).

Glenduffhill Road runs through a cutting between the station and a housing estate to the north, whilst Barrachnie Crescent is a residential street which runs past the main entrance to the station.

Entrances and Exits

There are three entrances/exits to this station:

The Main Entrance

You leave Barrachnie Crescent, going north, the ticket office is in front of you, with the sales counter in front of you as you go through the door. Turn left, before you reach the ticket office, through the normally open gates, onto the bridge. From here, you can continue (west) down a steep ramp onto platform 1, westbound, or turn right (north) over the bridge then turn left (west) and go down 16 then 15 steps, going west, onto platform 2, eastbound.

From Glenduffhill Road onto Platform 1, Westbound

You leave Glenduffhill Road just south of the rail bridge, going east. Go up 12 steep steps, going east then continue up a very steep ramp. At the top, turn left then right onto the west end of the platform. There's a hand rail to each side of the steps and along the left-hand (north) side of the ramp.

From Glenduffhill Road onto Platform 2, Eastbound

You can either take the ramp or steps.

Via the Steps

You leave Glenduffhill Road, going south then go up 3 x 9 steps and continue onto the platform, near the west end. There’s a hand rail to each side of these steps which are divided by a central rail. We noted steps going up north, opposite the foot of these steps into a housing estate.

Via the Ramp

You turn south, away from Glenduffhill Road then right (southwest). There’s a hand rail on the right-hand (northwest) side of this ramp. Continue, southwest, up the slope, which may be a bit steep for some users. The slope levels out before you reach the turning left onto the platform, opposite the top of the steps described above.
