The Terminus

Pencaitland must have been about the most remote bus terminus used by Lothian Buses.  It is about 5 miles SE of Tranent in East Lothian, close to where the Tyne Water and Humbie Water merge to form the River Tyne that flows through Haddington.

The Lothian Buses flat fare of 1.20 offered good value on this journey where buses ran to Edinburgh and on to Balerno at the foot of the Pentland Hills.
