Out and About: Linlithgow Palace and Country Park

Out and About: Linlithgow Palace and Country Park

When I was working in tourism,  I quite often talked about places I hadn’t been to myself – no wonder with so many choices. Naturally, it has been my goal since then to visit each and every one of the places I advertised and recommended to customers. My colleagues didn’t really help with that, as they always added even more amazing suggestions to my growing list… Thanks y’all!

Quite a while back – in February – I finally got around to visiting one place I passed by every morning on my commute to work: Linlithgow Palace. I am happy I took the trip as the whole area was incredibly beautiful – much better than I imagined. It had snowed the days before, and while there was no white fluff left, much of the Loch was frozen over. Blue skies, freezing temperatures and great views were a lovely combination for the day and I managed to take lots of pictures.

As it’s getting warm now, I’m hoping to go back to Linlithgow at some point and see more of the town. Have you been there before?

See you around,
