Bankton House Hotel

A hotel and former country house which gives its name to the Bankton district of Livingston in West Lothian, Bankton House Hotel is set in mature gardens a half-mile (1 km) south southeast of the town centre. Comprising a two-storey Georgian mansion, with single storey wings, the house was built in 1812 for James Bruce, who was Secretary of Excise. It is built of buff ashlar, with a grey-slated roof and features a pretty entrance porch. The southwestern wing is now extended with a modern conservatory. The hotel has eight bedrooms, meeting rooms, dining and a lounge bar, specialising in weddings and other family events.

Bankton House has been Category B-listed since 1971.
