Torphichen

"A village and a parish of W Linlithgowshire. The village stands 1 ½ miles ENE of Westfield statiion, 4 ½ miles SSW of Linlithgow, and 2 3/8 N by W of Bathgate, under which it has a post office. A place of great antiquity, and once of much importance, it now has an entirely rural character, and presents a straggling but pleasant appearance."
