Burntisland train station is not fully accessible. If this is a problem for you, you can book assistance from Scotrail, turn around at a different station, or take a bus for part of the journey.


Three options

Book assistance from Scotrail

If you know when you are travelling more than 24 hours in advance, you can book assistance from Scotrail. If you let them know that the station is not accessible, they will tell you to get off at an alternative station and will book (and pay for) a taxi to take you to Burntisland.

Due to the availability of accessible taxis in Fife, our personal experience is that there can be long delays waiting for a taxi to arrive.

Travel via Kirkcaldy or Aberdour

Catch a bus

The Stagecoach number 7 bus passes very close to The Beach House. If you need to pay for bus travel you can apply for a refund from Scotrail.


Delay repay

Scotrail’s ‘Delay Repay’ scheme refunds all or part of your ticket price if you are delayed. If you arrive in Burntisland later than you could have done if the station were accessible, this constitutes a delay, and you can claim compensation.


Campaign for better access

We are involved in local campaigning for better access for the train station.
