A89 dog walk near Bathgate West Lothian, Scotland


If you're after a peaceful walk, away from anywhere or anyone, then this is just the spot for a mooch with the pooch. Great view of the Forth Bridge over in the distance.


Car park open 1000-1600, and gated outside these times. Satnav coords for car park: 55.9121, -3.6103


From the higher end of the car park turn left at the footpath sign and walk for 20-30 metres to an information board. This gives full details of two circular trails within the park.

The Blue route is 2.5 kilometers / one hour, and the shorter red route is 1km / 25 minutes.

Both paths are well signed with colour coded arrows, and the paths are well maintained and easy to follow.

Local dog owners trudge up the hill from Bathgate to give their dogs a good run here, and it’s easy to see why.  The park is an excellent mix of good paths for people, and exciting terrain for dogs to enjoy chasing around in a very safe environment with, according to Jem, fine sniffing too.

There’s a view of the Forth Bridge over in the distance, and very few signs of human activity apart from that.

West Lothian council have done a good job here of reclaiming industrial land and recreating a natural environment that has developed into a tranquil and refreshing spot.
