The B6369 is a short B-road between Haddington and Gifford in East Lothian.

Heading north

The route is unusual in that it essentially consist of six straight sections, of varying lengths, connected by bends of varying severity. It starts on the B6355 by the white church on Gifford's wide Main Street and heads north, quickly leaving the village behind. The first long straight crosses fields and dips to cross a stream before climbing up to an area of woodland. It kinks right here, and then left at the end of a short straight. The next straight soon reaches the route's summit at 132m, before dropping steadily down Cockles Brae, kinking left again at the further end of Colstoun Wood. The next two corners are right angled at T junctions. First the route turns left, then after a short straight right, from where the road is almost dead straight all the way to Haddington. The last straight climbs a little past the Lennoxlove estate before dipping down to the town, passing a couple of side roads, but with no properties facing onto the main road. It ends to the south of the town on the B6368, where that road has to TOTSO.


Originally the B6369 continued over the River Tyne and into Haddington itself. There was then a short multiplex west along the A1, which at the time followed the wide High Street through the town centre (this is now the A6093). The route then resumed by turning right onto Hop Park and continued north to Aberlady, where it ended on the A198. At some point between 1932 and 1936, the route was cut back to its current length when the A6137 took over the northern section (and then the B6368 to the south of Haddington). As the original A6135 is shown on the 1932 edition of the OS Ten Mile Map, it can be presumed that the A6137 probably came into existence in 1933. Later still (after 1975) the A6137 south of Haddington was downgraded once more; it was all renumbered as the B6368, including the short section of former B6369, and so the B6369 still ends to the south of the town.

The 1922 MOT Road List defines this route as: Gifford - Haddington - Aberlady
