Name and dates

Dirleton (1849-1954)

Opened on the North Berwick Branch (North British Railway).

Description

This was a single platform station between Drem and North Berwick stations. The platform was on the east side of the line. The original small station building was later replaced with a larger building, a small version of the typical North British Railway style building. A railway cottage was just to the east, on the station approach.

To the south was a goods yard, approached from the south. Sidings were on the east side of the line.

The station was built at a countryside location, surrounded by farmland. Dirleton Castle is to the north west, about a mile and a half by road. The station survived until 1954.

The cottage remains, now a private house.
