Dirleton is a village and civil parish in East Lothian, Scotland. The community is located approximately 20 miles (32 km) east of Edinburgh on the A198. It contains 7,500 acres (30 km2).

Dirleton lies between North Berwick (east), Gullane (west), Fenton Barns (south) and the Yellowcraigs nature reserve, Archerfield Estate and the Firth of Forth (north). Gullane parish was joined to Dirleton parish in 1612 by an Act of Parliament because “Golyn (as it was anciently spelt) is ane decaying toun, and Dirleton is ane thriven place.”
