Adambrae

Adambrae is a residential area of Livingston, consisting of all privately owned housing. It is a relatively new area, construction starting in late 1998.

Adambrae is located south-west of Livingston Town Centre and is bordered to the south by the Kirkton. Adambrae is the only area of Livingston to not have any through roads.

There is a small nature area and pond adjacent to Bluebell Glade, where the "Adambrae burn" runs through the area. This area is home to various waterfowl.

Adambrae is a 10- to 20-minute walk from the excellent retail facilities of Livingston Town Centre.

Livingston FC's Almondvale Stadium is approximately a 15- to 30-minute walk away from Adambrae.

Livingston's only cemetery is within Adambrae. There is a decent children's play area located in Adambrae.

There is no primary school within Adambrae. The local catchment for primary schools are Bankton Primary School and St Ninians RC Primary School, which are located in the Dedridge area of Livingston.

The local high schools are St. Margaret's Academy and James Young High School, which are a 30-minute walk and a 10-minute walk, respectively.

Adambrae was originally named Adambrae Parks and was just two streets, Heatherfield Glade and Sundew Glade, but has grown over the years. All the streets in Adambrae have "Glade" in their name.

The name Adambrae was that of a farm further down the burn's course under the Macarthur Glen shopping centre. This can be seen on early revisions of Ordnance Survey maps of Edinburghshire (now Mid Lothian).[1] In the Land Registry, properties in Adambrae are classified as Mid Lothian as the Land Registry still uses the pre-war local authority boundaries.
