A western mixed-use neighbourhood of Livingston in West Lothian, Eliburn lies 1¼ miles (2 km) west northwest of the Almondvale Shopping Centre. Developed from the early 1990s, with houses for rent built by the Livingston Development Corporation which passed to West Lothian Council (230 homes) and Almond Housing Association (142 homes). Some public housing is managed by a local tenant co-operative. Subsequent developments of private and affordable housing have given a mix of semi-detached and detached houses, mostly of two storeys with garages. Eliburn Industrial Park lies to the southwest.

Eliburn is named for the stream which flows through the area, which in turn was named for the family of Murray of Elibank in Selkirkshire who bought the estate in 1633. The streets are all 'Places' with names of taken from the local area (often field names), for example Ballantyne Place, Cornfield Place, Foxknowe Place, Garden Place, Kilne Place, Ladywood Place, Lyefield Place, Northpark Place, Orchard Place and Rosehill Place.
