West Lothian 50+ Network – Trips

Over the years the West Lothian 50+ Network has organised many day trips to visit a very wide range of attractions and events.

New events are added regularly, so please look out for details of future outings.

Upcoming Day Trips:

26 May 2019 – Coach Trip to Loch Katrine and Callander

Booking is open from this Wednesday for our May coach trip to Loch Katrine and Callander.
Our first stop is at beautiful Loch Katrine where you can enjoy a stroll around the loch, enjoy a meal in the Steamship Cafe, or join a short 45 min cruise on the Lady of the Lake, gliding through the awe-inspiring Trossachs landscape.

We return via the nearby popular town of Callander where you will have free time in the afternoon.

Price £21 including boat cruise (£12 if you do not wish to go on the boat).

Departs from the old railway station in Bathgate at 9.30 am.

Pre-booking via the 50+ Network office is essential.

23 October 2019 – Coach Trip to Pitlochry and the Enchanted Forest

We’re planning a coach trip to the very popular Enchanted Forest in Pitlochry this October.

This will be on Wednesday 23rd October 2019 and will be in lieu of our usual monthly Sunday trip. (Because of the popularity of the event, we are unable to secure a weekend booking).

We’ll travel to Pitlochry in the morning, leaving the old railway station in Bathgate at 10.30 a.m, and arriving around midday. You’ll have free time in the town, then join our tour in the early evening.

Our allocated time slot to visit the Enchanted Forest will leave from Fisher’s Hotel at 5.45pm.

After a couple of hours in the Enchanted Forest, we’ll aim to be back in Bathgate around 10pm.

The cost for coach travel and entry to the Enchanted Forest is £35 per person.
You can also pre-book an optional high tea at Fisher’s Hotel for £15.
