Welcome to Loch House Farm Caravan Park

Places of Interest

We are ideally situated for visiting Edinburgh with its many historical places of interest including Edinburgh Castle, John Knox House, Holyrood Palace, Arthurs Seat and Dynamic Earth to name a few! Why not take an open top bus trip and discover the real Edinburgh? There are numerous pubs, restaurants and shops as well as parks and the famous Princes Street Gardens. If you are visiting in August why not take in a show or two at Edinburgh Fringe? Located just outside Edinburgh, close to West Lothian is Edinburgh International Climbing Arena - the "only indoor covered climbs on natural rock in the world.”

To the west there is Glasgow with its fantastic shopping and many sights including the Kelvingrove Art Galleries, George Square, the Clyde and open top bus tours. For a rainy day The Science Centre is worth a visit as well as a boat trip on the Clyde.

Just a short drive from Loch House Caravan Park in Linlithgow is the Falkirk Wheel. Falkirk Wheel is the world's first rotating boat lift which links the Union Canal from Edinburgh to the Forth & Clyde Canal to Glasgow. Boat trips are available on the Wheel as well as a visitor centre and café.

Close at hand in Linlithgow is the beautiful Linlithgow Palace which was the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots in 1542 and overlooks the Loch. Annet House, is a museum telling the story of Linlithgow and has attractive gardens, there is also the Linlithgow Canal Centre with a small museum and boat trips on the canal throughout the summer. Finally we have a good High Street with many interesting shops, restaurants and pubs.

Above Linlithgow, in the Bathgate Hills is Beecraigs Country Park with wooded trails, a fishery, play areas for children and a new adventure park. There is also Cairnpapple Hill, a Neolithic henge and Bronze Age burial site.

A short drive from our caravan park is Hopetoun House, Scotland's finest stately home, which also has beautiful grounds and a Deer Park where you can enjoy the outdoors and view the Georgian architecture designed by the architects Sir William Bruce and William Adam, and home to the Marquess of Linlithgow and his family. Just along the road from Hopetoun is House of the Binns, the historic home of the Dalyell family, now run by the National Trust and still home to Tam Dalyell.

For all the family a visit to Almond Valley Heritage Trust's Museum Farm in Livingston is well worth a visit. The museum depicts the shale oil industry of West Lothian. Outside on the farm, there are animals to visit, trampolines, play park, large sandpit, a soft play area and Adventure Zone for older children. There are also tractor rides, Narrow Gauge Railway and a café to enjoy a snack or some lunch.
