Lothians: To south of Tranent, on minor roads east of B6414 and west of B6371, at or near Windygoul.
Site of tower or old house, the location speculative. Both ‘E. Windygoule’ and ‘W. Windygoule’ aare marked on Blaeu’s map of the Lothians, then ‘E. Windygoul’ and ‘W. Windygoul’ on Adair’s map of East Lothian. Easter Windyroul farmhouse survives.
This was a property of the Setons in the 17th century, and Sir Robert Seton of Windygoul, son of George Seton, 3rd Earl of Winton, was made a baronet in 1671 shortly before his death. The property was held by the Andersons of Windygoul in the 18th century. In 1745 Bonnie Prince Charlie had passed the house of Mr Anderson of Windygoul, kissing Miss Anderson, who brought him wine. The lands are mostly occupied by housing estates and a school.
