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.

Statement of Interest

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.
