Tour Scotland Linlithgow

Linlithgow Town House, West Lothian, Scotland. At the heart of Linlithgow town is the open area in front of the magnificent Town House, built in 1668 to replace a building destroyed by Oliver Cromwell in 1650. Here you find the Cross Well, built in 1807 as a copy of its 1628 predecessor.

Whether you are a Black Bitch, an incomer or a visitor, this book has much to tell you about the West Lothian town of Linlithgow. It is steeped in history; James IV had a vision in St Michael's Church before he marched off to Flodden; Mary Queen of Scots was born here; James Stuart was assassinated in the High Street; and Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed here with his army in 1746. But Linlithgow is not simply a historical footnote - it is today home to a vibrant and dynamic population, and hosts an array of clubs and societies. In Linlithgow Life and Times, Wallace Lockhart looks at the unique qualities of the town, and tells why he is proud to call himself an honorary Black Bitch. For visitors, this book will provide places of interest to visit and explore, while for locals it offers a chance to reflect on what makes Linlithgow such a great place, and perhaps learn a thing or two about their own town. Linlithgow: Life and Times.
