Beecraigs Country Park

West Lothian | Linlithgow | Park | ★★

[Highland Cow at Beecraigs Country Park]

Nestling amongst the northern slopes of the Bathgate Hills close to Linlithgow, Beecraigs is probably the most worthwhile of the several country parks between Glasgow and Edinburgh. There's lots to do over the 370 hectares: a wander around Beecraigs Loch, a visit to the red deer herd alongside other animals in the Animal Attraction corner of the park... or lose yourself in the extensive woodland in the south and west of the park. The bronze age fort and excellent viewpoint of Cockleroy, although just outside the park boundary, is also easily walkable from here.
