B8029 Baldeston - Linlithgow
Heading south into Linlithgow

The B8029 is a short road around the western edge of Linlithgow. It was originally unclassified but appears to have gained its number by 1932.

The road starts on the A706 a little to the north of Linlithgow and heads west, before turning sharply southwards. It then crosses the M9 and enters the town, with an industrial estate on the right and houses to the left. This area is properly Linlithgow Bridge, the western end of the town; the B8029 meets the A803 a little to the east of the bridge in question. That crosses the River Avon, and the B825 starts its journey westwards on the far side.

The B8029, meanwhile, continues south, having crossed the A803 at a traffic-light-controlled crossroads to remain on the same side of the Avon. It kinks a little to the east to pass under the railway line. Beyond, there are open fields down to the river on the right, and journey's end is soon reached at a roundabout on the A706, the same road we started on, with both routes having taken about the same distance. It has to be said, however, that the A706 through the ancient town centre is probably the more interesting route!
