Prestonpans is a small station serving the village of the same name on the Firth of Forth. The village was the site of the battle of Prestonpans, and has a number of related monuments and ruins.

The town lies to the north of the station itself, and this is the front of the station area looking from the north:

The entrance to the station is through the station building on platform 1:
