A brand new centre and a cafe for visitors has officially opened up at Beecraigs Country Park.

The new facility is located in the former restaurant, which closed down a few years ago, and has a visitor reception.

A new information area which “boasts some of the best views in Scotland” has also been created.

The new cafe opened at the start of March and offers wholesome and tradtional menus from locally sourced produce as well as quality teas and coffee with a range of home baking.

There is also a picnic area outside the centre, toilets have been refurbished and wifi and computers are set to be installed.

Leader of West Lothian Council John McGinty said: “The new centre and facility will make a huge difference to visitors to Beecraigs.

“The centre is full of information about the park and its surroundings, and is very modern. It is also ideally positioned for visitors and has spectacular views.

“Our country parks are hugely important to local people. Thousands of people visit our parks each year and visitors will be impressed with these new facilities at Beecraigs.”

Eirwen Hopwood, the council’s parks and woodlands manager added: “We are delighted with the improvements and look forward to another busy spring and summer period.

“We have many attractions at Beecraigs and our new centre and café will be hugely beneficial to visitors and provides a spacious area for groups to meet and socialise.”
