West Lothian 50+ Network – Trips
Over the years the West Lothian 50+ Network has organised 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:
Coach Trip to Berwick on Tweed
Enjoy a day out in Berwick. With a choice of sandy beaches, walks along the river or around the town’s great Elizabethan walls, boat trips, historic museums, art galleries, shops and restaurants, there’s something for everyone.
Artist L.S. Lowry was a regular visitor to Berwick and you can walk in his footsteps on The Lowry Trail.
Coach Trip to Floors Castle
The annual Massed Pipe Bands Day in the grounds of the spectacular Floors Castle in Kelso is a memorable day out.
Pipe Bands from across the Scottish Borders are joined by music and dance performances, with commentary by Alistair Hutton, compere of the Edinburgh Tattoo.
There’s lots more to enjoy, from food and craft stalls, 2 cafes, the lovely walled garden and grounds, plus optional entry to the castle interior.

Coach Trip to Pitlochry & the Enchanted Forest
Wednesday 23 October 2019
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.
