Artist's Description

The North wing of Linlithgow Palace.

Although designated as a Royal Palace, this imposing fortification qualifies as a defensive Castle and was built to be just that.

You can see the remains of the barbican against the East wing which were added about 1500 to strengthen the defences of the entrance.

Occupying a prominent position beside Linlithgow Loch, the palace is one of Scotland’s best known historic buildings.

The first royal residence was established on this site in the 12th century; the present palace was started for King James I in 1425. James V was born here in 1512, and, by the time of the birth of Mary, Queen of Scots in 1542, the building had taken its present form.

Bonnie Prince Charlie was entertained here in 1745; a year later, after having been occupied by soldiers of the Duke of Cumberland, the palace was gutted by fire and has remained a noble ruin ever since.
