West Lothian History and Amenity Society


The Society was formed to study the history of Scotland in general, and West Lothian in particular.

We hold 7 meetings per year in various locations around West Lothian. They take place on a Wednesday evening at 7.30pm. The meetings take the form of a talk with an invited speaker with time afterwards for tea/coffee and a chat.

Details of the society and our programme can found on our website.
