West Lothian

A suburb of the new town of Livingston, Murieston lies 2 miles (3 km) south of the town centre on the Murieston Water, a tributary of the River Almond. Murieston House dates from c.1800, while the 16th-century Murieston Castle has been recast as a folly. Comprising detached private houses, Murieston was developed from east to west between 1969 and 1999 and now surrounds Livingston South Railway Station. There are a few scattered shops, a medical practice and a supermarket along the south side of Murieston Road, on both sides of the station.

Murieston Mine, to the southwest, was worked for limestone in the 19th C. and now forms Campbridge Park.
