Live the Bathgate life

You can take advantage of a brilliant location between Edinburgh and Glasgow - as well as an array of great ways to spend your downtime - when you decide to buy a house in Bathgate. You can also look forward to getting a great deal with offers such as our stress-free Part Exchange scheme which will make moving home easier.

Things to see and do in Bathgate


The Bennie Museum may be small, but it’s packed with a great selection of interesting exhibits which teach you about Bathgate’s history and local life. With your newfound knowledge in hand, you can enjoy your walk through Little Boghead Nature Park on the edge of town even more. 

If you want to push yourself a little further with a hike, run or bike ride, Cairnpapple Hill rewards visitors with picturesque, coast-to-coast views from more than 300 metres above sea level. You can continue north to explore Muiravonside Country Park and visit Almond Castle, or stick closer to town to play a round of golf at one of the local courses. 

Education

Families with young children can choose from a range of local primary schools, including St Mary’s Primary, which is close to the centre of town on Whitburn Road. Balbardie Primary on Torphichen Street is also central, while Windyknowe Primary is in the east of town. 

If it’s a secondary school you’re after, the town offers a choice between Bathgate Academy - which has received solid inspection reports from Education Scotland in recent years - and Moore House School on Edinburgh Road. 

Bathgate transport links

Bathgate train station lies along Edinburgh Road in the south east of town. From here you can catch a train to both Glasgow and Edinburgh in around half an hour. It’s a similar drive to Scotland’s two biggest cities, thanks to the M8 motorway which runs just to the south of Bathgate. Meanwhile, Livingston is less than five minutes away on the train, or a little longer if you drive or catch the bus.

The Bathgate property scene

West Lothian’s property market has seen some strong growth over recent years, but the average house price is still much more affordable than in either Edinburgh or Glasgow. You can benefit from a short commute to both cities, as well as the lovely natural landscapes of the local area when you buy a new home just to the south east of town in the Polbeth area. 

Choose from an exciting selection of 3 and 4 bedroom semi and detached homes which are beautiful inside and out, only steps from open countryside and walking distance from Cobbinshaw Reservoir. If this sounds like the place for you, don’t hesitate to give us a call. When you do, make sure you ask your adviser about offers such as our Movemaker and Part Exchange schemes.
