House, East Saltoun

East Saltoun is a picturesque village of East Lothian, located 5 miles (8 km) southwest of Haddington and 2½ miles (4 km) east of Pencaitland. The village includes several 18th Century buildings and a Gothic Parish Church, built in 1805 on the site of an earlier church. East Saltoun supports a primary school, shop and post office and is designated as a conservation area.

Saltoun was once served by a branch-line railway, which ran 2 miles (3 km) to south of the village and then on to Gifford. Saltoun station lay to the west of West Saltoun. The railway was never greatly successful and closed to passengers in 1933 and completely in 1960. Its route has been retained as a cycle track.
