The property is located in the coastal town of Bo'ness in an elevated position with stunning views across the Forth to Fife.

The motorway links for the M9 and the Edinburgh City Bypass are close by. An excellent commuter train service operates from Linlithgow approximately 3 miles away.

The surrounding area is rich in culture and history. Hopetoun House, the House of the Binns, Linlithgow Palace and Blackness Castle are on the doorstep. Recreational opportunities include sailing from Port Edgar and rail excursions on the Bo'ness & Kinneil Railway.


The Old Manse of Bo'ness is a substantial stone built, period property, set within extensive , mature, garden ground, commanding beautiful views over the River Forth to the Ochil Hills and Fife beyond. The former manse occupies an enviable, elevated setting in the heart of Old Bo'ness with a bright rear southerly aspect. The property exudes a wealth of charm and character with many enhancing period features while providing superior family accommodation of generous proportions and convenient layout. Some upgrading and decoration could transform the light, elegant interior into a magnificent residence providing an excellent opportunity for a purchaser to incorporate personal specification and attention to detail.
