Beecraigs Country Park

Beecraigs Country Park is a great place to visit. It caters for a wide range of leisure and recreational activities within its 370 hectares (913 acres) and can be discovered nestled high in the Bathgate Hills near the historic town of Linlithgow.


Country Park Re-open

Only the following services now remain closed - BBQ hire, room hire, Sutherland Building hire, Ranger Service events and activities.

To be able to reopen our services, we have introduced new procedures and changes in how our buildings/facilities can be used for the safety of both the public and staff. 

For example, numbers entering the Almondell & Calderwood Visitor Centre and the Beecraigs Visitor Centre Shop/Reception have been limited and a one-way system introduced.

Occupancy on the Beecraigs Caravan & Camping Site has been reduced and new, additional Terms & Conditions introduced. 

Please help us by following all advice on site, carefully plan your trip to any of West Lothian's countryside locations,  help us by taking your litter home with you, and ensure you continue to follow current NHS Inform and Scottish Government guidance.  If some locations are busy when you arrive, please consider visiting an alternative site that is less busy.
