Polmont is a great local station for getting to Edinburgh, Glasgow or Stirling easily. There are two trains an hour to each. This station is manned but has no gates. There is one ticket machine taking cards only. Plenty of parking available in the station...More

No one is behind the desk half the time so it’s always difficult to get specialised tickets and the staff have no conception of times and the trains people are aiming for on their platforms. The machines are frequently down too.

Staff were helpful & friendly. Frequent services to Edinburgh & Glasgow, approx£10ish return. Decent little car park, probably best to call a taxi when returning As the rank is not usually populated by cabs. Does what it says on the tin really.

Train very comfortable and a great way to get into Edinburgh in about 30 mins why drive and park . The people on the train are all so friendly and keen to let tourists know of their favourite attractions in Edinburgh

Small station, almost hidden off the main road, no shops or anything else like that and only a single ticket machine, could probably do with a coffee shop
