Uphall Station is a small village located in the geographical county of West Lothian, Scotland. The name is derived from neighbouring town Uphall on account of there being a small railway station located on the northeast perimeter of the village. The village is situated southeast of neighbouring Uphall, north of Pumpherston and northeast of Livingston. It is administered by West Lothian Council. It lies approximately a quarter of a mile from the A89 dual carriageway, which is a major road running between Greenock in the west of Scotland and Edinburgh in the east of Scotland. A gala day (an outdoor fête) is held annually, usually in June.
