Linlithgow is a town in the West Lothian area of Scotland. It has a population of about 19,000, and was the birthplace of Mary, Queen of Scots.
Linlithgow hosts events such as the Riding of the Marches, which dates back to the 14th century. It takes place every year on the first Tuesday after the second Thursday in June. It started as a way to check the boundaries of the community were still intact, but today you can enjoy a parade and procession. Linlithgow also hosts an annual Folk Festival, and a music festival called the Party At The Palace, which has seen performances by The Proclaimers, Charlatans, and Deacon Blue.
Linlithgow is home to Linlithgow Palace, the birthplace of Mary, Queen of Scots. The current castle dates back to 1424, when the castle was built after a huge fire swept through the town. The Duke of Cumberland's army invaded and burnt the castle in January of 1746, leaving it in ruin. It has been preserved since the 19th century, and is open year-round for visitors.
Linlithgow Loch is the largest natural freshwater loch in the Lothian area, and has been deemed a Site of Special Scientific Interest. You can go fishing at the Loch, and although it used to be known for its brown trout, you’ll mostly find rainbow trout here. Only fly fishing is allowed in the loch, and you must return all fish less than 10 inches to the water. You must also return all brown trout. You must also apply for a tariff which will cost you a small fee.

Disabled Parking in Linlithgow
Blue badge holders might be eligible to have a disabled park marked near their home. All you need is to have a suitable vehicle registered at your address, although this doesn’t guarantee a parking bay if there isn’t one available. This can be a bit of a lengthy process, potentially taking between 9 to 12 months to have the parking bay marked and then beginning the legal procedure to ensure the bay can be legally enforced. Once this is done, you must always display your blue badge when using the park.
In order to apply for a blue badge, you must pay an administration fee of £20. The badge can be valid for up to 3 years, and it will cost a further £20 to replace a lost or stolen badge.
There are 2 disabled parking bays in the Linlithgow train station car park.
To search for the disabled car park that is closest to Linlithgow, see the Blue Badge Parking website.
