Location and Amenities
Livingston’s ‘new town’ status belies its’ ancient origins. Picture the scene, a 12th century Flemish entrepreneur called De Leving was granted land in the beautiful Almond valley. Sheltered on the south side by the Pentland hills, and on the north side by the Bathgate hills, he would have found it difficult to believe his luck! To protect his family and retinue he set about building a fortified peel tower – the natives could be a bit hostile – and the surrounding settlement became known as Levingstoun.
In the mid 17th century Sir Patrick Murray bought the lands and the old peel tower. Here he created a beautiful home and one of the first botanical gardens in Scotland. Specimens from these gardens were taken to form the world famous botanical gardens in Edinburgh.
During the industrial revolution and into the 19th century, Livingston thrived. The development of the oil shale industry brought wealth and opportunity to the area. In fact, there wouldn’t be a Texan oil industry if it weren’t for the technology developed in the nearby village of Addiewell and Livingston at this time.
For entertainment Livingston has a wealth of great cafes, bars and restaurants. And if the buzz of Edinburgh calls, you can be in the city centre, by rail, in less than half an hour, to enjoy world-class venues for theatre, ballet, the Festival, the Tattoo and other seasonal entertainments. Easy access to the M8 and M9 motorway networks ensure swift travel times to Edinburgh airport, throughout the central belt and beyond.
Excellent shopping experiences abound at The Centre; a comfortable all year fest of famous brands and services for your delight and delectation.
Highly regarded educational facilities are equally accessible and range from Livingston Village and Peel primaries to James Young and St Margaret’s high schools. There are also great local nurseries providing all day and wrap around
In the surrounding area there is an abundance of countryside to explore. From the Bathgate hills to the Pentlands, not to mention close to home, Polkemmet, Beecraigs and Almondell, three beautiful country parks, with a great variety and opportunity for outdoor leisure pursuits.
