  • Open all year & free to visit, Almondell & Calderwood is tucked out of sight in the valley of the River Almond, stretching for 1.5 miles between Broxburn & East Calder.

    Created from 2 adjoining estates (Almondell 97 acres & Calderwood 130 acres), with a history going back 340 million years to the time of the Carboniferous swamps, this area has much to offer its visitors.

    Left undeveloped & unspoilt, Calderwood is a natural woodland, located on a plateau bounded by Linhouse & Murieston Waters, home to a wealth of wildlife. Calderwood is designated a Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI).
