Seton Sands

Located on the Forth coast, between Prestonpans and Longniddry, Port Seton is now part of the combined burgh of Cockenzie and Port Seton. Port Seton is now a holiday resort, but was traditionally a fishing and salt making village with the latter declining by the mid-19th Century. Fishing and mining still take place in the area and much of the coal fuels the 1200 megawatt Cockenzie Power Station which is located nearby. Also nearby can be found Seton Sands, a favourite holiday spot.
