Living in West Lothian

Close to the capital

Being next to Scotland’s capital city brings excellent connections, business and leisure opportunities.. Queensferry is the guardian of the iconic bridges across the Firth of Forth, Linlithgow made Scottish history as the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, and Livingston has made modern history with the largest shopping area in Scotland.The urbanized north alongside the Firth of Forth, merges with Edinburgh’s suburbs, putting the benefits of city life within easy reach. It’s just as easy to head west to Glasgow. 

There are great road and rail connections, and Edinburgh Airport is a real asset. The M8 runs through the middle, linking Edinburgh and Glasgow, the M9 heads to Falkirk, and the M90 crosses the Forth on its way to Perth.

From centuries of history to modern convenience 

The area boasts a rich cultural and industrial heritage, with landmarks and castles around every corner. Your new home is a stone’s throw from the grand Linlithgow Palace, birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots and the remote Blackness Castle looking towards the Forth Bridge and Queensferry to the East.

While the county is steeped in centuries of history, it’s also a fun place to shop – with the Livingston Designer Outlet the largest in Scotland with countless high street brands and designer boutiques – all close to your new house. The county is in a strategic position between Glasgow and Edinburgh with frequent train services and major roadways, allowing for easy access to both cities' employment hubs.
