what3words is an easy way to talk about any precise location in the world. It gives every 3m x 3m square a unique combination of three words: a what3words address.
For example, Linlithgow Burgh Halls has the what3words ///melt.tame.replying.
A what3words address is more precise than a street address, and many people find three words easier to remember and say than GPS coordinates, grid references or latitude and longitude.
Anyone can use the free what3words app or online map at what3words.com to find, search or share what3words addresses. You can find, search or share a what3words address in over 40 languages to date.
On listings for some of our larger attractions on the Visit West Lothian site, simply press the "Getting There" Tab and look out for the what3word code just before the map. You can then click the ///3words to be taken to a map showing the exact location of the attraction.
