|Route outline (key)|
The B1377 is a largely rural B-road in East Lothian. The road was originally unclassified but gained its present number in the mid-1920s.
The road starts at a mini-roundabout on the A198 on the eastern edge of Longniddry. The station is just to the west and the B1377 follows the East Coast Main Line for the whole of its route.
Heading east across open fields the road runs with the railway to the right as far as Spittal, where the line is crossed. Different styles of parapet suggest that the line of the road has been straightened. With the line now on the left we cross the A6137 at a roundabout, then there's a more obvious zigzag across the railway just before we enter Drem. By the station access road we TOTSO right; the road bears left to become the B1345.
Road and railway line now run alongside each other, with a short detour as we cross the North Berwick Branch Line. A mile or so further on we reach a T-junction on the B1347. We turn right under the railway line to multiplex along that road. There's a sharp left-hand bend as the B1343 comes in from the right and then the multiplex ends on the near side of East Fortune as the B1347 TOTSOs right. The road narrows as it passes through the hamlet. East Fortune Airfield is to the right.
After going over the railway line again we TOTSO right at a crossroads and then continue south to go over a hill and descend into East Linton. This section of the road is the furthest away from the ECML we get to be. On the near side of town the B1407 comes in from the left and multiplexes with us into the town centre. A T-junction marks the original eastern end of the B1377 on the pre-bypass A1. However, the B1407 now continues right from here, under the prominent railway bridge, whilst the B1377 continues left. We cross a narrow bridge over the River Tyne before following Mill Wynd to the road's end at a roundabout on the A199.
