FRIGHT NIGHTS at Linlithgow Palace will be taking place on 30th and 31st October and 6th and 7th November 2015 at 7.30pm and 9.00pm each night.
Linlithgow Palace was the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. You can see the elaborate, restored fountain in action every Sunday in July and August. The high towers look down over the palace’s grounds – the Peel – and Linlithgow Loch, an important refuge for wildlife.
Built and developed over two centuries by successive Stewart kings of Scotland, Linlithgow Palace was a comfortable and attractive retreat from affairs of state, conveniently placed between Stirling and Edinburgh. Both James V and his daughter Mary Queen of Scots were born here, overlooking the tranquil beauty of the loch and park. This superb Renaissance residence allows a unique insight into the domestic life of Scottish royalty. View the newly unveiled statue of Mary Queen of Scots situated on the Peel.Linlithgow Palace was used as the prison corridors and entrances in episode 15 of Outlander.
