West Lothian has some outstanding locations for filming and events.

Centrally located, with excellent rail links and easily accessible from the M8 and M9, we are just 30 minutes from Edinburgh and Glasgow, but our beautiful countryside, stately homes and quaint towns feel a world away. With past successes including Chanel’s Metiers d’Art fashion show at Linlithgow Palace and films like ‘The Jacket’ starring Keira Knightly filmed at Bangour Hospital, we have the experience to help you deliver your project.

If you are thinking about filming or holding an event in West Lothian, please contact us using the contact details above.
