Right in the centre of Scotland convenient for Edinburgh Airport and with easy access to all the motorway links to take you to the West and Glasgow or to Stirling and the North.
It really is a convenient low cost base to explore Edinburgh, Stirling, Glasgow and all of Central Scotland or to take the highway winding west or north.
This town is just west of Edinburgh airport and is very near EICA, Edinburgh International Climbing Centre.
Whether you're in the mood for a gentle stroll or something a little more taxing, the surrounding area won't disappoint. Saunter along the canal side, take a walk through our woodlands and country parks or set your sights a little higher. The views from the Bathgate Hills are worth the hike, and the Pentland Hills offer more than 100km of signposted trails to explore.
THere are more than adequate shops and eating places in the town if you are here for a short stay but if you want to do some serious shopping go to nearby Livingstone with its modern shops and outlets.
