Radio Saltire started in August 2011 when a group of enthusiasts got together to discuss the possibility of creating an online radio station to serve the people of East Lothian. Broadcasting commenced on 10th October 2011.

Since then we have been broadcasting 24/7 and our listening audience continued to grow throughout East Lothian.


In 2013, we consolidated our position as one of Scotland’s leading online community radio stations with a move to new studios in Tranent, in the heart of East Lothian.


From 2nd December 2018, Radio Saltire has also been broadcasting on FM – this means the station is available in ways that are most convenient for everybody. In addition to listening online you can listen in your car, at home, on your mobile, on your smart device – whatever works best for you.



At Radio Saltire, we have one goal -

to serve you, our community.

We are here to inform, transform and unite us all, whilst playing great music and having a blether!


So much so, we have our very own Community News Facebook page where we provide a free “What’s Happening” service, as well as announcing local news to keep you all up-to-date and in the loop. Have a little scroll through and check out what's happening in our community or if you prefer, head straight over to the Radio Saltire Community News Facebook page itself.


But that's not all. Every week, we have an hour long show called Community Matters where we talk to local people, businesses and charities and hear all about them.

If you have a community event you'd like to tell us about, or some local news you'd like us to share, please head over to our CONTACT page and fill in the form.
