Free James Watt events

SCOTS inventor James Watt – and his links with Kinneil House in Bo’ness – will be celebrated during free open days this weekend.

The events have been organised by Historic Scotland in conjunction with the charity The Friends of Kinneil.

Families are being encouraged to come along to Kinneil House on Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22. Tours and interpretation will be available from noon to 4 p.m., with the last admission to the House at 3.30 p.m. each day.

Visitors will be able to hear all about Watt’s work, see the remains of his former workshop (pictured) and see inside Kinneil House, the home of his early business partner, Dr. John Roebuck.

The House boasts some of the best renaissance wall paintings in Scotland and dates back to the 15th century.
