Torphichen

(West Lothian)

Torphichen is a small village located near Bathgate, in the West Lothian region of Greater Edinburgh. The village church is said to have been founded by St. Ninian in about 400CE, a small wooden structure on the site of the present church (itself rebuilt in 1756). The Knights Hospitallers of St. John made their Scottish headquarters at Torphichen from about 1160 and the Preceptory stands as testament to their presence.
