Positioned midway between Glasgow and Edinburgh, West Lothian's many attractions are within easy reach of the major cities.
West Lothian has a wide range of leisure pursuits on offer for anyone in search of adventure or relaxation. For the active, there are dozens of golf courses in the area plus sailing at the Low Port Centre. This is also excellent walking territory, be it gentle saunters in the many green spaces or something more taxing, such as the Bathgate Hills where the views are worth the hike, and the Pentland Hills which offer more than 100km of signposted trails to explore.
The area's heritage is rich and diverse, and well worth exploring. In just a day you can take in historic attractions - prehistoric burial sites, palace ruins, castles and stately homes - that span hundreds, even thousands, of years.
For some family fun, West Lothian can provide all the excitement that's needed, whatever the ages. Almond Valley Heritage Centre, Five Sisters Zoo, ten pin bowling and our world-famous skateboarding park are guaranteed to tick all the right boxes.
Add to this a busy programme of events, activities, music and performances taking place in most local towns, plus some excellent shopping, and it's easy to see why West Lothian is ideal for a day trip or overnight stay.
