Broxburn is a tiny hamlet consisting of a handful of scattered houses which serve the Broxmouth estate in East Lothian, Scotland, and is more correctly the name of the creek upon which it stands, the Brox Burn. It lies about two miles south-east of Dunbar. (NT 676/77). Here, on the Brox Burn, is Brand's Mill, dating from mediaeval times.

The Battle of Dunbar (1650), on 3 September, took place on the foothills directly south, halfway between Brand's Mill and the hamlet of Little Pinkerton.
