Dalgety Bay railway station serves the town of Dalgety Bay in Fife, Scotland. Lying on the Fife Circle and Edinburgh to Aberdeen lines, it is managed by ScotRail. It is currently the nearest railway station to Fordell Firs Camp site, the Scottish national headquarters for The Scout Association in Scotland, part of Scouting in Scotland.
The station is built close to the former station Donibristle Halt, opened in 1890 (closed 1959) as part of the Aberdour Line by the North British Railway, and named for the Earl of Moray's estate of Donibristle on which it stood.
In 2008, the station has two platforms and is unstaffed. The station is equipped with shelters on both platforms, with a self-service ticket machine located on the shelter in Platform 1. A footbridge connects the platforms.
Services are given in National Rail Timetable 242. There is a basic 30 minute service, with alternate trains serving Kirkcaldy and the Fife Circle route via Cowdenbeath to Edinburgh. Kirkcaldy services are periodically extended to Dundee.
