Welcome to the Livingstoni community forum.

Livingston is West Lothian’s largest town and indeed, apart from Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh, by far the largest in the whole of the Lothian’s. During the past forty odd years over 50,000 people have chosen to make it their home, which is a remarkable achievement considering that before the 1960’s few beyond its immediate area had ever heard of it. All that changed in 1962 when the government was seeking a suitable place to relocate Glasgow’s over spill population and chose this beautiful area on the banks of the River Almond with it beautiful scenery of the Pentlands hills to the south and the Bathgate hills to the north, midway between Glasgow and Edinburgh, to be the attractive site for the fourth of Scotland’s five designated new towns. Other such towns which were created were “East Kilbride, Irvine, Cumbernauld and Glenrothes”. Livingston is one of the most successful out of the five which is now the administrative, economic and shopping centre for the whole of West Lothian.
