Attractions in West Lothian

Hopetoun HouseWest Lothian has a thriving toursim centre with an abundance of attractions and places to visit right on your doorstep!  Here are some of our own personal favorites:

Hopetoun House

Probably the most beautiful property in the Lothians, Hopetoun House is situated next to South Queensferry.  Charles Hope (later 1st Earl of Hopetoun) commissioned Sir William Bruce to build the original House in 1699 and work was largely complete by 1707. In 1721, William Adam was asked to remodel and enlarge the House; the beautiful front that you approach today is his response. The back of the House is still Bruce's original and the two live together in remarkable harmony. It is really well worth a visit!

New Lanark

As a world heritage site, this award winning Visitors Centre and beautifully restored 18th century cotton mill village is nestled in the spectacular south Lanarkshire valley in southern Scotland, close to the Falls of Clyde and less than an hour from Edinburgh and Glasgow. A really good interactive attraction.
