Welcome to the County Grand Lodge of the East website

Here you will find our latest news, photos, video’s and information, whether it be about our rich history, faith and charity work, open days, parades, events or about us in general.

The County Grand Lodge of the East is one of the 4 County Grand Lodges that make up the Grand Orange Lodge of Scotland. The others being the County Grand Lodge of Ayrshire Renfrewshire and Argyle, County Grand Lodge of Central Scotland and the County Grand Lodge of Glasgow.

We have Lodges as far afield as Inverness and Peterhead in the North, to Prestonpans and Port Seton in the South East. We are the largest Geographical County Grand Lodge in Scotland, which comprises of some 74 Male/Female Lodges with Juvenile Lodges in the Central Belt. 

Our History, Heritage, Culture and Faith are the very essence of our beliefs, and while we can justifiably be proud of these attributes, we also recognise that others are equally proud of their Culture, and we would not deny anyone else their right to celebrate their own beliefs.

We hope that you will find our Website, both informative and educational, giving you an insight into the Orange Order and the active role our members have within their communities. Please enjoy reading.
