Linlithgow Palace

Historic Buildings & Homes

Kirkgate, Linlithgow, West Lothian, EH49 7AL

    The magnificent ruin of a great Royal Palace set in its own park and beside Linlithgow Loch.

    A favoured residence of the Stewart kings and queens from James I (1406-37) onward. Building work commissioned by James I, III, IV, V and VI can be seen. The great hall and chapel are particularly fine. James V (1512) and Mary Queen of Scots (1542) were both born here.

    Surfaces inside the Palace are mainly stone slabs and small cobbles in the courtyard. The ticket office, shop and courtyard are accessible to visitors with disabilities. More mobile visitors should be able to access the first floor which forms the main part of the property. Access is available to Linlithgow Loch and extensive peel (park).
