Linlithgow Palace

Renaissance palace of the Stewart kings begun in 1424. Visited by Prince Charles Edward in September 1745 , it is said that the 16th century fountain in the courtyard ran with wine in his honour. The Duke of Cumberland’s army burned down most of the house in January 1746 but the impressive shell remains. Now in the care of Historic Environment Scotland.
