Bellsquarry is a small area on the south of Livingston next to Murieston. Like Livingston Village and Livingston Station it became part of Livingston when the town was built in 1962. But it still has a small village feel to it with its old buildings and fields surrounding it. The Elm Tree Inn on the picture to the right has been closed for a while but is soon to be reopened. The town is on the old Edinburgh to Kilmarnock road and in the 19th century the Elm Tree Inn was used for giving exhausted travellers a drink. The name Bellsquarry comes from the local limestone quarry and the owner Mr Bell.
