West Lothian, to the west of Edinburgh, is one of the smaller Scottish counties but has plenty of historic castles and mansions. Linlithgow Palace was the birthplace of Mary, Queen of Scots and Blackness Castle has found new fame for its appearances in Outlander. The House of the Binns and Hopetoun House are large mansions but the book includes numerous smaller and less well-known properties many built or extended with the riches from the county’s heavy industry and some consumed by it like Westwood House which has been entombed in a shale oil works bing. Other houses doubled as temporary hospitals in wartime then went back to being family homes. Large or small, old and not so old the stories behind these properties are told in the lengthy captions in this small book.
