  • Excellent castle sits outside Edinburgh near Linlithgow. Has views of river but is very historical and information boards throughout. To the front you can have picnic with a few picnic tables around. On clear days you can spot the three Bridges in the distance. Note not the most disabled friendly castle as cobblestone and uneven paths.
  • Why have we never came before? What a lovely castle. Price very reasonable and alot to see for the size of it. Very well maintained with stunning views esp from the Tower roof. Lovely picnic spot too.
