Phase two has now started @ Xcite Linlithgow! The project has moved on to renovating the previous Gym area into two new Studios, bringing the venue’s total to 4. There will also be works renovating the Changing and Toilet Facilities. Temporary changing facilities are provided during Phase two which is expected to be complete in early 2016. The alternative temporary changing facilities are available at the back of the building. This will be accessible through the new corridor leading to the new GYM.

Please note that some of the cabins are marked ‘shower’ for solo shower use. Others are communal changing facilities with separate blocks for Male and Female. Toilets are available at the end of the corridor. If you have any queries please ask a member of the Xcite Team who will be happy to help. The team are also happy to walk you to the changing area.
