Opened on the Caledonian Railway.
This was a two platform station in the south western suburb of Edinburgh on the approach to Edinburgh Princes Street station.
There were station buildings on each platform and no goods yard. (Sidings for the Edinburgh and Dumfriesshire Dairy were later installed closer to Edinburgh.)
To the south west was Slateford Junction [1st]. With the closure of Princes Street and its approach in 1965, Merchiston closed and trains were diverted onto the approach to Haymarket station.
The platforms remain and the trackbed is now the approach road for Slateford Yard.
