Linlithgow

Linlithgow Loch and Palace

Linlithgow is a 16th Century town 18 miles outside of Edinburgh, that is easily visited by train, that was the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. The main attraction is Linlithgow Palace which remains largely intact and makes a fascinating attraction, with displayed artefacts and illustrations of the way life was lived in Tudor times and what passed for the then Scottish Court. Linlithgow is also the home of the Edinburgh & Glasgow Union Canal Centre from where boats can be hired to experience the Falkirk Wheel or for the two and a half hour canal trip to the fantastic Avon Aqueduct.
