Tourist Information

Things to see & do in Linlithgow

Linlithgow is a Royal Burgh located about 20 miles from Edinburgh and under an hour from Glasgow by train or car. The town is steeped in history and retains much of the old character and architecture and has many attractions and facilities for visitors.

Linlithgow is the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots and the preserved ruins of the Royal Palace can be visited in a picturesque setting next to Linlithgow Loch.  After a fire in 1424, James I started construction of the present palace, but this took over 200 years to complete.

Boat trips on the Union Canal are another popular excursion.
