Day Tour Linlithgow Palace Scotland

Wednesday, July 23, 2008

I am uploading today a series of images and 2 videos of the Renaissance Linlithgow Palace.

You can find between Falkirk and Edinburgh the lovely little town of Linlithgow, where the palace is situated. The 15th-century ruin is set on the edge of Linlithgow Loch and is associated with James V (1512) and Mary Queen of Scots (1542), who were both born here. James V was also married here, to Mary of Guise, and Bonnie Prince Charlie visited the palace during the 1745 rebellion. One year later, the palace was badly damaged by fire during its occupation by General Hawley's troops, prior to their defeat by Jacobite forces under Prince Charles at the Battle of Falkirk.
