The central belt of Scotland has long been regarded as the beating industrial heart of this hardworking nation. Stretched between the twin metropolises of Edinburgh and Glasgow, cities such as Falkirk, Livingston and Motherwell have a powerful working-class identity and proud history. The small town of Armadale fits confidently into this tradition: in past years it was well known both for mining the rich resources of the area, and for brick manufacture.
The town is home to Armadale Academy, providing secondary education to pupils who have come through Armadale Primary School. Armadale also contains numerous sports teams – the local football team, Armadale Thistle, is enthusiastically followed by locals, who also enjoy greyhound racing and speedway. Retail and leisure facilities in the town include nine pubs, and a selection of local shops such as a sweet shop and butcher's, as well as a local Scotmid supermarket for daily groceries.
