Murieston Water

A river of West Lothian, the Murieston Water has its source in Cobbinshaw Reservoir, 2½ miles (4 km) south of West Calder. Flowing northeast, it is referred to as the Bog Burn in its early stages but becomes known as the Murieston Water in the vicinity of Torphin Bridge. Its only significant tributaries are the Vein Syke and Feebee Syke, both in its uppermost stages. Pleasant woodland extends along much of the middle and lower reaches of the river, with the wooded Murieston Trail extending from Campbridge Park in the Livingston suburb of Murieston to Livingston South Station, which is located between the river and the district of Williamston. Its final stage flows through the Almondell and Calderwood Country Park. Having followed a course of 7½ miles (12 km), it falls into the Linhouse Water on the southern edge of Mid Calder, shortly before the Linhouse Water becomes a tributary of the River Almond.
