Remarkably intact castle with links to Mary Q of Scots. You can explore at will and climb right to the top of the tower for fantastic views.

We had a great time climbing the stairs and ducking though the doorway. Finding all the hidden alcoves. The Palace allows you to use your imagination throughout. Good entry price for the amount of time we spent exploring.

Linlithgow Palace was surprisingly interesting and offers great views of the surrounding countryside! The fountain in the courtyard is beautiful. Make the stop on your trip through Scotland.

There is a big park area outside dogs are certainly allowed there. Check with Heritage Scotland they'll let you know if dogs are allowed inside facade. It really is a beautiful place to visit.

Yes, we toured the castle and than walked into town. We decided on a restored Post Office turned Pub and had a good lunch and a friendly bartender. Also it's a short walk to the train station.
