An Historic Scotland Category A Listed Building

The focal point of Linlithgow, West Lothian, Scotland, is the Cross, the main square overlooked by the magnificent Town House, built in 1668-70 to replace the original Tolbooth, demolished on the orders of Oliver Cromwell.

Altered over the years, it now accommodates the Burgh Halls (including the Council Chamber of the former Linlithgow Town Council) and the local Visitor Awareness Centre.

Linlithgow Town House is an Historic Scotland Category A Listed Building (HB Number 37362).

The ornate Cross Well, itself a replica of a 1628 original, was created in 1807 by Robert Gray, a one-handed stonemason.

Linlithgow Cross Well is an Historic Scotland Category B Listed Structure (HB Number 37367).
