Wonderful house, full of charm and history. With some of the family still residing on the property, hours of entry are limited. Tours of the property are by guide only and the best way to be informed of the history of the house and its residents. The Dalyell family have lived in the house for over 400 years and from General Tam Dalyell and his card game with the Devil in the 1600's, to Labour MP Tam Dalyell who sadly passed away earlier this year, there is a wealth of history contained.

The stunning beauty of Linlithgow palace, birthplace of Mary, Queen of Scots, is amazing. The palace ruins are a labyrinthine of stairways, passages, hidden nooks and chambers, which children will enjoy exploring. The top of the northwest tower (Queen Margaret’s Bower) offers amazing views of the surrounding area and the Loch below. One of the highlights of the Palace is a recently restored fountain, built by Mary's father James V, in a very stunning renaissance style in the central courtyard.

With almost 600 years of history, and an imposing position on the Firth of Forth, this structurally intact Castle is a must see. It is easy to see why it was such a historically important Building and why it was still in use until the mid 1900's. Walk around the castle walls and to the top of the central tower and admire the breathtaking views, including that of the three bridges. Take a walk out through the drawbridge and along the pier and view the castles imposing prominence.
