Aberlady railway station served the village of Aberlady in Scotland. It was served by the Aberlady, Gullane and North Berwick railway. This line diverged from the East Coast Main Line at Aberlady Junction, east of the current Longniddry station.

History[edit]

Opened by the Aberlady, Gullane and North Berwick Railway, it was absorbed by the North British Railway. Then station passed on to the London and North Eastern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. That company then withdrew passenger services nine years later, although the line was still open to freight until 1964.

The station had been the location of a Camping coach.
