The county town of West Lothian, this ancient town has played an instrumental role in shaping the history of Scotland. As the birthplace of James V and Mary, Queen of Scots the town has royal prestige. The town centre was remodelled in the 1960s. The burgh’s coat of arms features a black dog chained to an oak tree and the town has a pub named The Black Bitch Tavern in its honour.
