Craigshill

Craigshill is a residential area in the east of Livingston. Almond Housing Association's offices are located in Craigshill, so is the majority of our stock.

Craigshill was the first part of the town of Livingston to be constructed starting in 1966. The first homes of Craigshill, the houses and bungalows in Broom Walk and Tay Walk, were completed on 31st March 1966. These first properties were built to a Swedish system with concrete panels and flat roofs and were the precursors to thousands of new properties built by the former Livingston Development Corporation.

The areas is roughly divided into six sections - the Groves, the Streets, the Drives, the Walks, the Parks and the Courts. Craigshill has three primary schools: Letham, Riverside and Beatlie. Craigshill High School was built in 1969 but closed in 1992. Inveralmond Community High School opened in 1970 and is the main high school for the area.

Almondbank Library is next to Craigshill Shopping Mall and The Co-Operative. To the north of the area the Livingston Squadron of the Air Training Corps (2535) meet in Maple Grove. The nearest rail station to Craigshill is Uphall, which is on the North Clyde Line. Craigshill is also the home to three churches and home to West Lothian's first mosque.
