How to get to there by car The tannery is approximately 18 miles (29 km) from the centre of Edinburgh. Livingston can be reached from Junction 3 of the M8.

After 600 metres, take the slip-road left onto Houstoun Road. This will be signposted Uphall Station and Pumpherston. You pass the New Houstoun Business Park (containing Screwfix and J&W Carpets) on the left. Nettlehill Road is the next turning on the left at the traffic lights. Proceed up Nettlehill Road for about 500 metres, passing DS Packaging on the right, turning left in the dog-leg continuation of Nettlehill Road. We are about 300 metres on the left.

M8 Junction 3, Livingston - Eastbound slip road closure

A major refurbishment of the bridge that carries the eastbound slip road off the M8 at Junction 3 near Livingston over the A899 is planned to start on the 13th February 2023 for six months. Due to essential structural works required on the bridge at Junction 3, the slip road will be closed from mid-February for approximately five months. Clearly signed diversion routes will maintain access to Livingston from the M8 coming from the west. Two-way traffic on the local A899 will be maintained when possible, however overnight closures will be required for the safety of road users during the erection and dismantling of scaffolding on the structure overhead near the start and end of the improvement programme.
