Bathgate is a small town in West Lothian, Scotland situated 18 miles from Edinburgh, 23 miles from Glasgow and 9 miles from Livingston, benefitting from its proximity to the numerous electronics and hi-tech companies based in the “Silicon Glen”. Bathgate's origins date back to the 1100s. In 1328 Robert the Bruce gave the Royal Castle in Bathgate to his daughter Marjorie on her marriage to Walter, the High Steward of Scotland which was the start of the Stewart dynasty that ruled Scotland until 1689. The town has experienced repeated periods of growth and decline throughout its history including the Glenmavis Distillery, steelworks, coalmining, the world's first oil refinery and in more recent times, the motor and electronics industries. On the last Saturday in May Bathgate hosts annual the West Lothian Highland Games, it also features in the chorus of the Proclaimers' song "Letter from America."
