Linlithgow

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  Scotland  /  West Lothian  /  Linlithgow
Linlithgow is a royal burgh in West Lothian, Scotland. It is West Lothian's county town, reflected in the county's alternate name of Linlithgowshire. An ancient town, it lies south of its two most prominent landmarks: Linlithgow Palace and Linlithgow Loch, and north of the Union Canal.Linlithgow's patron saint is Saint Michael and its motto is St. Michael is kinde to straingers. A statue of the saint holding the burgh coat of arms stands on the high street.LocationLinlithgow is located in the north-east of West Lothian, close to the border with Stirlingshire. It lies 20mi west of Edinburgh along the main railway route to Glasgow. Before the construction of the M8 & M9 motorways and the opening of the Forth Road Bridge, the town lay on the main road from Edinburgh to Stirling, Perth and Inverness while the canal system linked the burgh to Edinburgh and Glasgow. The nearby village of Blackness once served as the burgh's port. Linlithgow is overlooked by its local hill, Cockleroi.
