West Mains Woodland
Running by the side of the A704, with the West Calder Burn. The northeastern limit of the West Mains Lowland Crofting Project.
Lowland Crofting Project West Mains Farm
This project, confined to West Lothian, was started in 1994 to allow the development of very low density rural housing and woodland development, by dividing up poorer-quality farms to provide a small number of rural homesteads and, in bleaker areas in need of restoration, pleasant well-wooded landscapes. The scheme applied to whole farms of 40-80 ha [the size of a typical West Lothian small farm], and was essentially intended to be for self-build projects LinkExternal link . This handbook is undated, but it was produced ca 2005, and at the time of publication thirteen schemes had been approved. The houses built so far do not look like the normal crofting dwellings that one sees in the north of Scotland. The West Mains Crofts project covers four kilometre squares centred on NT000610.
