Opened on the Edinburgh, Loanhead and Roslin Railway.
This was a single platform station. It remains an excellent example of a small North British Railway station with platform, station building, station house and goods shed.
Ramsay Colliery was to the immediate west.
The signal box was at the north end, controlling access to the colliery sidings and the goods yard (on the east side of the line). There was a loop to the north of the station.
After closure of the line to Bilston Glen Colliery the line was cut back to the platform, the line remaining until it was lifted back to the loop at the south end of Millerhill Yard.
