Visitor Centre at Almondell  Country Park

Almondell & Calderwood Country Park is tucked out of sight in the valley of the River Almond

covering 220 acres between Broxburn and East Calder.

Based around two adjoining estates ( Almondell at 97 acres and Calderwood at 130 acres )

and 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 and unspoilt, Calderwood is a complete contrast to Almondell. 

This natural woodland, located on a plateau bounded by the Linhouse and Murieston Waters,

is home to a wealth of wildlife. Roe deer, fox, heron and woodpecker all make their homes here,

while the many oak and hazel trees provide food for the squirrels and wood mice.

For this reason Calderwood has been designated a Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI).
