Low Port Centre

Supporting Active Communities


Welcome to Low Port Centre

Low Port Centre in Linlithgow is administered by West Lothian Council and is considered to be Central Scotland's Premier Outdoor Centre.

We have been organising outdoor activities for over 30 years and are committed to providing a high quality outdoor education service and residential facility for the benefit of schools, community groups, the wider community of West Lothian and throughout the country.

In addition to the service we provide to the schools and community of West Lothian, we have expertise in developing training for businesses using outdoor pursuits to develop problem solving and corporate team building.

Throughout the year, we also run a programme of adult courses for those who wish to develop their skills, further their experience or work towards nationally recognised qualifications. During the school summer holiday period, we run a very busy and varied programme of activities for children.

We are an Health and Safety Executive (HSE) approved Centre for providing training in First Aid. Shorter Emergency Aid courses can also be arranged.

We aim to:

  • promote outdoor education in schools
  • use outdoor education to promote fitness, health, recreation and personal development
  • enhance the school curriculum using outdoor education to place a practical emphasis on classroom subjects
  • offer our clients as wide a range of outdoor pursuits as possible
  • utilise the potential of outdoor pursuits as a platform to provide high quality corporate training.

As an 'Investor in People', West Lothian Council is committed to high quality and we at Low Port Centre are justly proud of the part we play in this.
