Welcome to the Official Website for
COURT of the DEACONS of the ANCIENT and ROYAL BURGH of LINLITHGOW
Scottish Charity No SC 044893

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.

You can find out about the history of The Marches and information about Marches Day from the pages indexed on the menu bar above.

The 2013 Marches will soon be a distant memory but you can relive the glorious day by looking at the Photographs in the media section. Images from this year’s Marches will be posted after the 18th.

The important dates for the 2014 Marches Riding are

1st Deacons Night - Saturday7th June
Crying of the Marches - Friday 13th June
2nd Deacons Night - Saturday 14th June
