Description

This is a two platform station.

A station house remains next to the west end of the station and level crossing, in use as a house.

The station was briefly known as Slateford before Slateford [2nd] opened to the east of the Slateford Viaduct. The station was renamed Kings Knowes very briefly before becoming Kingsknowe.

A goods yard existed to the west of the station, on the north side of the line and approached from the east.
