Tranent stretches as far north as the main Edinburgh - London rail line, east to St Germains and Macmerry (in Gladsmuir parish), south to Pencaitland, Ormiston, and Cousland (Midlothian), and west to Inveresk.
It includes the town of Tranent, the village of Elphinstone, the hamlets of Meadowmill and Buxley, Fa'side and a scattering of farms and steadings.
The lie of the land is basically level ground beside a hill slope, prominent at Carberry and Fa'side on the west, whence it gradually declines towards the east through Tranent burgh, to become flat lands east of the town by Kingslaw, Adniston and St Germains.
