1846. Single storey, 4-bay H-plan plain Italianate station and station master's house (now private residence) with deep eaves. Later lean-to porch to NE with large window, decorative tiled floor, modern glazed door and slated roof. Conservatory to SW. Squared snecked sandstone with ashlar dressings. Base course. Irregularly fenestrated with bipartite mullioned windows in gables to NE elevation; slightly advanced window to SW gable. Stop-chamfered doorway in advanced gabled porch to SE elevation with narrow flanking windows.
INTERIOR: timber panelled doors to all rooms, and original chimneypieces to main rooms; small cast-iron early 20th century range with green tiles in kitchen.
BOOKING OFFICE: late 19th century timber-panelled counter with cupboards and drawers, panelled screen and glazed partition above. Original chimneypiece and grate in office. Some timber-boarded panelling to dado.
Graded grey slates, corniced stacks, some cylindrical clay cans. Predominantly 12- and 8-pane glazing in timber sash and case windows.
Built for the North British railway and opened 22nd June 1846; closed 18th June 1951. Stations surviving from the 1840s are fairly uncommon in Scotland, and this is a particularly well preserved example. The surviving stations between Edinburgh, Haymarket and Cupar are of a similar style and date. The intact fittings in the booking office are of particular interest.
