Curriehill railway station is located in Currie, a southwestern suburb of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland, not far from the main campus of Heriot-Watt University. It lies on the Shotts Line, which runs from Glasgow Central to Edinburgh Waverley by way of Shotts.
Curriehill is a reopened station. The original Curriehill (called "Currie") opened on 15 February 1848, and was closed by British Railways on 31 March 1951. The present station (which occupies the site of the old station) opened on 5 October 1987.
Curriehill is currently served on Mondays to Saturdays by an approximately hourly Abellio ScotRail service in each direction, to Edinburgh and Glasgow Central. There is one train per day to North Berwick and one to Ayr via Carstairs. Two trains per day run to Motherwell (one in the evening peak running via Shotts and one late night service via Carstairs), whilst one starts back from there. On Sundays the service is more limited, with two-hourly departures each way after midday.
