Description

This was a two platform station to the south of Turnhouse Farm and east of today's Edinburgh Airport.

The main station building was on the Edinburgh bound platform with a smaller on the Fife platform. There was a goods yard on the east side, approached from the south.

Nothing remains of the passenger station and the goods station is now in other uses.

The airport's passenger terminal buildings were built to the west, the station was unable to be re-opened to serve them. The cargo depot is alongside the former station. The airport is served by Edinburgh Airport [Tram] on the Edinburgh Trams system.
