Just three miles south of historic Linlithgow, nestled high in the scenic Bathgate Hills, West Lothian Council caters for a wide range of leisure and recreational interests within its 370 hectare (913 acre) Country Park. The Countryside Ranger Service will help you to both enjoy your visit and understand the needs of the countryside. Groups are recommended to arrange their visit with the Ranger Service well in advance.

Begin your visit at the Park Centre where advice and information, crafts and gifts, venison, confectionary and refreshments are available. There are so many things to experience throughout the year - beautiful walks, animal attraction (Highland Cattle & red deer), picnicking & BBQs, outdoor activities such as flyfishing and orienteering. Why not come and stay for longer in the Park on the Beecraigs Caravan & Camping Site".

Miles of walks and trails criss-cross through the woodlands. Cycling and horse-riding is welcome through the Park but please ride responsibly and ask at the Park Centre for advise on suitable routes first. Information boards at each car park assist you with your choice of activity. A walk to the top of Cockleroy Hill is well worth the effort, offering panoramic views to Goat Fell on the Isle of Arran.

Groups can hire the target archery range, climbing wall and pioneering courses. Please contact for further information.

Come along and have a go at the popular and excilarating high rope adventure run by Go Ape.
