Livingston is a new town situated between Edinburgh and Glasgow, just off the M8. Although not a massive tourist destinaton in itself it is a good site to explore central Scotland from as it has good transport links to everywhere. Its most obvious feature is the large shopping centre including the McArthur Glen discount shopping centre, which is a classy example of the genre and includes a multiplex cinema.  There are also some lovely areas including the original Livingston Village area, Almondell country park and the Almond river.
