The route starts on the east edge of Wallyford, meeting the A199 and A6094 at a roundabout which sees the East Coast Mainline railway passing underneath. The road runs along the southern boundary of the Royal Musselburgh Golf Club before entering the small town of Prestonpans.
Passing through a mainly residential area, with a junction with the B1349 which gives access to the older part of the town, the B1361 passes Prestonpans railway station, after which the road remains parallel to the aforementioned East Coast Mainline for the remainder of its route.
