Linlithgow is most famous for being the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots in 1547. Linlithgow Palace, where she was born, was ravaged by fire in 1746 (accidentally, according to some historical records), but the grand Medieval structure remains largely intact and is a magnet for tourists and people with an interest in Scottish history. It is situated on the shores of Linlithgow Loch, which is the largest freshwater loch in the Lothian region. It is a popular location for rainbow trout fishing, as well as kayaking, windsurfing and canoeing.
Those looking for a more tranquil experience on the water can enjoy a leisurely trip by narrowboat down the restored Union Canal, which was designed by Thomas Telford. The canal was originally conceived for the purpose of transporting mined minerals, but it became redundant when a railway line was built in Linlithgow. The town has always had thriving leather and shoe-making industries, as well as a whisky distillery and more recently has started producing artisan gin.
