Piershill railway station was a railway station in Edinburgh, Scotland, on a loop off the main line. It was opened on 22 March 1868.
Piershill station closed in 1964, when passenger rail services were withdrawn from the Musselburgh branch rail service as part of the British Railways rationalisation programme known as the Beeching Axe, although the line itself was retained for rail freight use. The route continues to be used for infrequent movement of waste from Powderhall to the East Coast Main Line.
Piershill was near the temporary Meadowbank Stadium station which was opened during the Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh in 1986; Meadowbank station closed shortly after the games finished.
