Tynehead is situated on the crossroads of the B6367 and B6458. It is the longest summit in Britain. The tiny village grew with this station (now closed) and still provides accommodation for the nearby Tynehead Farm. The station served on the Edinburgh to Hawick line (it opened in 1848, the line 1845), which ran from the newly acquired Edinburgh and Dalkieth Railway. This ran through Gorebridge and Fushiebridge, calling at Tynehead before making its way to the Moorfoots and Lammermuirs. Latterly it was part of the Waverley Route, which finally closed in January 1969. The line has now been dismantled.
