The Riding of the Marches of the Ancient and Royal Burgh of Linlithgow is a tradition dating back to the 16th century. In the 21st century the Riding is essentially just as it was in the early years of the 20th and the thriving Deacons’ Court will continue to organise the Riding on the first Tuesday after the second Thursday in June every year.
