Linlithgow is a very historic town; the chief historic attraction is the remains of Linithgow Palace, the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, which is located next to the loch. Linlithgow's patron saint is Saint Michael and its motto is "St Michael is kind to strangers". St Michael's church is beautiful and has the longest aisle in Scotland.
Linlithgow's rich history and central location make it a popular tourist destination, and has a number of local parks, including play areas for children, also an outdoor education centre, and country parks. There is lots to see and do and there are many excellent restaurants to eat and drink.
Edinburgh alone boasts an intriguing history also, which can be uncovered as you explore the city. Edinburgh is a city of contrasts blending shopping, historic attractions, gardens and plenty of restaurants and cafes where you can relax. Atmospheric cobbled streets, wonderful architecture which is recognised as a World Heritage Site, old closes and wide avenues allow you to imagine yourself transported back in time.
