Polkemmet Country Park
Enjoy beautiful woodland and riverside walks in this 168 acre country park near Whitburn. There are a number of walking trails taking you through the woodland and along the River Almond which runs through the park. There is also an abundance of wildlife - look out for Roe deer, fox, heron, water voles, bats and badgers.
Facilities in the park are very good with a visitor centre housed in the old stables. Here you will find a wealth of information about the area and a cafe. Polkemmet also contains a nine hole golf course and driving range.
The park is located between Livingston and Airdrie.
Just to the north of the park you can pick up the Airdrie to Bathgate Cycle Path. This shared cycling and walking route could be followed west along a disused railway line to visit the pretty Hillend Reservoir.
