Livingston Business Front
Livingston sits 15 miles west of Edinburgh and 30 miles east of Glasgow. It is the ideal position to house a business in if yours involves being in both places equally. Originally a number of small villages, Livingston has grown out to be a town with a varying range of businesses taking up home here. BskyB is the largest employer in the area and Tesco have their main distribution warehouse for Scotland and Northern Ireland here, but plenty of small businesses are in the area too.
With Livingston being a very young town (it came to be in the early 1960s), the formerly unoccupied space gave way to many different business parks and industrial estates. Some of the most prominent in the area include Starlaw, Alba, Shairps, Alderstone, Pyramids, Almondvale and Fairways Industrial Estate. These parks rely a lot on the great links to both coasts and the north of the country.
The area sits right by the M74, one of the major road routes that runs in to Glasgow and along the south side of the Clyde. It is also the best way of getting to Glasgow Airport, located 14 miles away. Driving to Edinburgh is incredibly easy on the M8 & M90. The M90 is also an important out of Livingston as it makes it very quick to get over the Forth and up north to Dunfermline, Perth, Dundee and all the way to Aberdeen. Four train stations surround Livingston like a square grid. Livingston North and Uphall sit on north of town alongside the M8, while Livingston South and Kirknewtown run alongside the A71. A train to Edinburgh can only be 20 minutes from Livingston, while to train to Glasgow has an average journey time of 45 minutes.
Over a dozen primary schools and four secondary schools are located in Livingston, as well as West Lothian College. The further education institution has roughly 8,000 students and teaches everything from Computing and Electronics to Hospitality and Vehicle Maintenance.
As it is so close to the two biggest cities in Scotland, Livingston’s social life is more of a laid back affair. Many of the residents are commuters and families who call the small town home. If you’re someone who likes a bargain though, Livingston Designer Outlet has a number of famous brand name stores including Lacoste, Tommy Hilfiger and Nike offering high fashion at a low price.
