Bo'ness (or to use the full name of Borrowstounness) is a town in the Falkirk Council area. Lying on a hillside on the south bank of the Firth of Forth, it was a centre of heavy industry and coal mining, and a major port.

Bo'ness is now primarily a commuter town, with many of its residents travelling to work in Edinburgh, Glasgow or Falkirk. One of the main local sources of employment is the BP petrochemical facility located in nearby Grangemouth.

Present-day attractions in the town include the Bo'ness & Kinneil Railway and the Birkhill Fireclay Mine. Kinneil House, built by the powerful Hamilton family in the 15th century, lies on the western edge of the town. In the grounds are a cottage where James Watt worked on his experimental steam engine and the steam cylinder of a Newcomen engine. The remains of an engine house are located in Kinningars Park, off Harbour Road.

Bo'ness has a single secondary school, Bo'ness Academy, and five primary schools: Deanburn, Kinneil, Bo'ness Public School, St Mary's, and the Grange School.

Whether you are looking for a house, flat, bungalow, apartment, new build or any other kind of property for sale or for rent, ESPC may have the one in Bo'ness that you are looking for.
