Tour Scotland Linlithgow Palace

Linlithgow Palace, West Lothian, Scotland, has had a long association with royalty. King David I founded the burgh and a royal manor house existed there in the 12th century and in 1301 King Edward I of England stayed there with his invading army while supporting the claim of John Balliol to the Scottish throne. In 1424 most of the town of Linlithgow was destroyed by fire and King James I, who had just returned from exile in England, began the palace that we see today. In 1461 the Palace was used as a residence for King Henry VI of England after he had been overthrown by King Edward IV. Mary Queen of Scots was also born at Linlithgow.
