Things to do

-Family attractions: Funtastic Fantasy Golf is a great place to take the children, and just as fun for the adults too! The mini golf course is in West Lothian’s biggest town, Livingston, and is the only black light mini golf in Scotland. The UV colours, sounds, and interactive props make a great day out for the whole family. Refreshments are available at the on-site eatery – Dino’s café.

-Walking and cycling: Holiday homes in West Lothian are in good walking country and the trails in West Lothian are a great way to see the sights. Simple trails wind to picturesque places like the lochside village of Linlithgow, or there are more challenging routes like Bathgate Hills which offer some spectacular views of central Scotland, including Ben Lomond. There are trails in Beecraigs Country Park too along with other outdoor activities.

-Historical attractions: Linlithgow Palace is the birthplace of Mary, Queen of the Scots and offers fantastic views and a taste of history. Self-guided tours of the castle take in the Great Hall where banquets were hosted and the personal chambers of James IV. There are lovely views from the castle’s high towers including across Loch Linlithgow. In the summer months there is also access to the adjacent Church of St. Michael, another of Scotland’s finest medieval buildings.

-Day trips: Guests who choose rural West Lothian holiday cottages will undoubtedly end up in Livingstone at some point during their stay. As a New Town it has a large civic centre and also one of the UK’s largest shopping complexes. Shopping is excellent here with designer outlets and retail parks set next to leisure complexes and multi-screen cinemas. Golf fans will find a course at Deer Park and golf widows and kids can while away the hours at the park’s tenpin bowling alley.

-Wildlife: The Five Sisters Zoo is in West Calder, just west of Livingston. The zoo is open all year round and has a collection of birds and animals from all over the world. The zoo is currently undergoing major development which will greatly enhance the experience – especially for younger members of the family – so visitors are advised to check the website for the latest news.

Weather in West Lothian

In the summer the temperatures can reach around 25°C but tend to run about 18-20°C on average. In the winter, the weather gets much colder and depending on the location of the holiday homes in West Lothian windy days and snow are probable. Being an area with a temperate climate, rain is pretty much spread throughout the year.

Travel to West Lothian

With being so close to Edinburgh, getting to the general West Lothian area is not a problem as the city is served by air, trains, coaches and major road links including Scotland’s main motorways. Specific travel depends entirely upon the chosen location of a West Lothian holiday home but a car is advisable for getting about and making the most of a stay.

Exactly what it says on th etin

5 of 5
Secluded location perhaps a bit further from Linlithgow than we thought (not really walkable) but close. Very relaxing and topped off with Badger Cam, Findlay was very helpful and appeared to be genuinely keen to look after you. A lot to see in the area and easy access to most place, Edinburgh on the train less than 30 minutes

Everything we needed

5 of 5
We needed somewhere to stay whilst moving home, waiting for our new house to be ready. This property was perfect with all the facilities we needed and was very clean. Would definitely recommend.
