Linlithgow Palace, Linlithgow

Linlithgow-Palace

This is one of Scotlands four Royal Palaces.

It stands on a promontory of Loch Linlithgow.

Its ruins are worth visiting on any tours of Scotland.

It has many striking architectural features and is usually not that crowded with visitors.

 

It has been a royal residence since at least the 12th Century.

 

The current building is from around 1425 and Mary Queen of Scots was born there.

 

The palace has a real place in Scottish history.

The actual history is amazing.

 

Add to this Saint Michaels church and there is plenty to see.

This church dates from before 1400.

 

The loch itself is striking and beautiful.

It was once an important food source by supplying eels for locals to eat.

Now it is a bird sanctuary.
