Welcome to Kinglass Fields.
On the edge of this historic town, buffered by open green landscapes to the south and just a mile from the town centre, this prestigious development of two, three, four and five bedroom homes presents an opportunity to settle in a mature, traditional community within easy commuting range of Edinburgh and the whole central belt. Close to local shops and amenities, and adjacent to bus routes and footpaths, it combines convenience with a real sense of roots.
For more local travel, Bo’ness town centre is a short walk away. The homes are close to a network of footpaths and cycle routes. The town has a number of unusual attractions that reflect its long history, including a celebrated heritage steam railway, the Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway, which operates trains between Bo’ness and Manuel and also has a volunteer run historic railway museum. Bo’ness is also the location of Scotland’s oldest purpose-built cinema, the magnificent pre-Art Deco Hippodrome, and the local library is housed in a renovated 17th century building.
More modern leisure amenities include West Lothian Golf Club on the southern edge of the development and Bo’ness Recreation Centre, around a quarter of a mile away. The Recreation Centre incorporates a 25m swimming pool, a well-equipped gym and a wide choice of sports and fitness activities. It also has recycling bins for glass, metal cans, clothing and shoes, and there are more comprehensive recycling facilities at Kinneil Kerse, around two miles away. The Co-op store in Linlithgow road, less than ten minutes walk from the development, is a licensed food store and newsagent, and is open till late seven days a week. There is a pharmacist just a little further on in Dean Road. The town centre contains a mixture of traditional specialist shops and services as well as Lidl and Tesco Metro stores. There is also a selection of shops, including a Sainsbury’s, in nearby Linlithgow.
Of the five primary schools in the town, the two nearest to the development are Kinneil Primary and St Mary’s RC Primary, both of which have had positive inspection reports, and for secondary education Bo’ness Academy is just a few minutes walk away. Kinglass Medical Practice, a full-time service with three GPs, is just half a mile away, and the choice of dental surgeries in the town includes the Rosemount practice, approximately a mile from the development
