Opened on the Edinburgh, Leith and Granton Railway.


This was the terminus of the line from Edinburgh Canal Street after its extension from Trinity [1st]. It was located on the middle pier at Granton Harbour.

The station had a single platform. Lines ran onto Granton Slip from which a train ferry operated to Burntisland [1st] in Fife. The linkspan to the ferry and the ferries themselves were designed by Thomas Bouch.

Some railway lines remain in place although remains of the station. The slip still exists.
