Bathgate is an ancient town located just two miles from the Neolithic burial site at Cairnpapple. In 1315, Marjorie Bruce, the daughter of Robert the Bruce, married Walter Stewart, the 6th Lord High Steward of Scotland. Her dowry included Bathgate and its castle.
Today, Bathgate Castle is reduced to the foundations, but the royal wedding of almost 700 years ago is still celebrated every year as part of Bathgate Galaday. Bathgate’s other great benefactor was John Newlands, the Scottish owner of a plantation in Jamaica. He built the Bathgate Academy, which is Bathgate’s largest historic building. It has now been converted into flats. Historically, Bathgate was a centre for mining and manufacturing.
The main employer is Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs department, which is sited at a former Motorola Factory.
Bathgate is a comfortable town where most families have a patch of green to call their own. Many residents of Bathgate are looking for sheds, workshops, and garages to enhance their gardens and to provide sheltered space for cars, bicycles, motorbikes, scooters, power tools and other types of mechanical equipment.
