Linlithgow Palace

West Lothian | Linlithgow | Palace | ★★★

[Palace entrance]

Chief amongst Linlithgow's attractions is its huge palace, an architecturally striking building on the site of an earlier castle and overlooking Linlithgow Loch. Parts date to 1424 and much remains intact despite the roof being missing. The courtyard is an impressive place, surrounded by walkways linking grand rooms and ranges on all levels. James V, Mary, Queen of Scots, and Princess Elizabeth were all born here, with the building's active use only coming to an end as the result of a major fire in 1746.
