Celebrated for its rich heritage, friendly communities, great shopping and wide-open green space, West Lothian is a fantastic place to put down roots. There’s plenty to do for families and young professionals alike, and it’s one of the most well-connected areas in Scotland’s central belt. 


We have three developments in this desirable area - Fairnielea and The Grange in Livingston and Calderwood in East Calder – here are just some of the reasons West Lothian is the perfect place to settle down. 


Experience the magic from the big screen


Not only has West Lothian’s stunning scenery provided the backdrop to several TV dramas – it’s also been showcased on the big screen in blockbuster films. 


Filming took place for the critically acclaimed Outlander series at Linlithgow Palace and in Beecraigs Country Park, which doubled as the North Carolina wilderness in the hit show. In the first season, Blackness Castle, an impressive 15th-century fortress, can be spotted too.


Blackness Castle also served as a shooting location in Netflix’s Outlaw King and the latest Mary Queen of Scots film, featuring Oscar-nominated actresses Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie. 



A shopper’s paradise


West Lothian is home to some of Scotland’s top shopping destinations. At The Centre, you can find over 155 high-street stores, restaurants and leisure facilities. Livingston Designer Outlet is a fantastic destination for fashionistas, with hundreds of offers on premium and designer brands. 



Commuting made easy


West Lothian is an excellent base for buyers looking for easy access to Scotland’s major cities. For buyers at Fairnielea and The Grange, trains from Livingston South frequently run to Edinburgh and Glasgow. For those at Calderwood, Edinburgh is just 25 minutes away by train from Kirknewton. Edinburgh Airport is also within easy reach, and there are links to the Forth Bridges. 



There’s something for everyone


Whether you’re a young professional looking to settle down within easy reach of Glasgow’s vibrant City Centre or a growing family with active children, West Lothian has something for everyone. 


For sports lovers, the Xcite portfolio of fitness centres cater to all kinds of hobbies with leisure pools, high spec gyms and fitness classes on offer daily. Almondell Country Park is also a great spot for dog walks and forest trails. 


Golfers are also spoilt for choice with a total of fifteen courses and clubs in the area, making it easy to fit in a few rounds in the drier months. 


Animal lovers can come face-to-face with owls from all over the world at the Scottish Owl Centre while lions, lemurs, bears and meerkats are among the eighteen different species at Five Sisters Zoo.
