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

History

Opened by the Aberlady, Gullane and North Berwick Railway, it was absorbed by the North British Railway. Although the line was intended to reach North Berwick, Gullane remained the terminus as the line east was never constructed.

The station passed on to the London and North Eastern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. That company then closed to passengers nine years later, although the line was still open to freight until later.
