Linlithgow Palace from the main gate

The magnificent ruins of Linlithgow Palace are set in a park beside a loch.

Most of the Stewart kings lived at the Palace. Numerous renovations to the palace’s grand facades and chambers were carried out as each sought to create the ideal modern palace.

Highlights

* The location – majestically situated in the centre of Linlithgow, beside 15th-century St Michael’s Kirk, and overlooking the peel (park) and loch. The loch has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest thanks to its wildfowl population.
* The magnificent great hall – despite being roofless, it still has the power to impress.
* The oriels – elegant projecting windows off the king’s and queen’s bedchambers.
* The fountain – a beautiful three-tiered ‘wedding-cake’ structure in the centre of the courtyard. It can be seen in full flow every Sunday in July and August.
* The sculptures – all around the palace are sumptuous stone-carved figures, including beguiling angel musicians in the royal chapel.
