Linlithgow is one of the most attractive towns in the middle of the Central Belt, with plenty of history and a popular commuter town for both Edinburgh and Glasgow. Linlithgow Palace is its most famous tourist attraction: birthplace of Mary, Queen of Scots and enjoying a beautiful setting above Linlithgow Loch, itself worth a wander around at any time of year. St Michael's Church stands on the other side of the palace: proximity to the palace dictates that its history is closely intertwined, and Mary, Queen of Scots was baptised here. Don't leave before visiting some of Linlithgow's other highlights: the bustling high street, the canal running through the southern side of the town, or nearby Beecraigs Country Park.
