LINLITHGOW


Linlithgow is a thriving historic town of about 15,000 inhabitants located in the central belt of Scotland and is easily accessible by car, train or bus. Enter EH49 7AH into Google Maps to find the location.

Visitors coming for the Marches have plenty of sights to see and things to do. The main attraction of Linlithgow is Linlithgow Palace , the birthplace of Mary, Queen of Scots with its public park, The Peel, overlooking the loch.

Next to the Palace is the 15th century St. Michael's Church , the most complete surviving example of a large late medieval 'burgh kirk' in Scotland. Its western tower originally had a distinctive stone crown spire. This was replaced in 1964 by a, at the time controversial, spire in aluminium in a modern style by the prominent Scots architect Sir Basil Spence, representing Christ's crown of thorns.
