The garden has a paved patio and several outbuildings; however the main garden grounds retain very natural elements and provide a haven for wildlife, in keeping with the surrounding landscape.
By road, Almondbank is approximately three miles from the historic Royal Burgh of Linlithgow, which is steeped in history, with Linlithgow Palace at its heart. Linlithgow sits in the middle of the Scottish Lowlands and has an extremely popular, bustling town centre supporting a wide range of family-run businesses offering some of the best of food and drink, clothing, gifts, and arts & crafts shops. Sainsbury, Tesco, and Aldi supermarkets are all represented and local schooling is available at both primary and secondary level. Linlithgow has excellent transport connections to all the major towns of central Scotland. The M9 gives quick access to Edinburgh and the M80 to Glasgow, respectively. The railway station provides regular services to Glasgow and Edinburgh, making this an ideal base for commuting.
