Inverkeithing railway station serves the town of Inverkeithing in Fife, Scotland. The station is managed by ScotRail and is on the Fife Circle Line, 13¼ miles (21 km) north west of Edinburgh Waverley.
The station is popular with commuters travelling to Edinburgh from Fife and beyond, thanks to its location beside the M90 motorway. Immediately north of the station, the Fife Circle Line splits in two. Two large free of charge park and ride car parks are provided.
Journey times as low as 15 minutes are available to Haymarket as CrossCountry, Virgin Trains East Coast and ScotRail express services between Edinburgh and Aberdeen stop here. Some services between Edinburgh and Inverness also stop at Inverkeithing.
Mondays to Saturdays daytimes, four Fife Circle Line trains per hour go southbound to Edinburgh. Northbound, services run every half hour to Dunfermline Town, and half hourly to Kirkcaldy. Evenings and Sundays, two trains per hour go southbound to Edinburgh and two per hour go along the Fife Circle one in each direction (one via Dunfermline and one via Kirkcaldy).
Monday to Saturday - nearly all ScotRail services to Aberdeen and Inverness no longer stop at Inverkeithing. Trains destined for Perth, Dundee, Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath are the ones generally calling at Inverkeithing from Edinburgh. There is a once daily train to Glasgow Queen Street each morning, returning in the evening peak.
