Artist's Description

The local park (the Peel), in Linlithgow, West Lothian, Scotland. The Peel is a man made park which once was part of the adjacent Loch.

In the distance is the imposing ruin of Linlithgow Palace, a favourite residence of the Stewart kings before the Union of the Crowns.

Occupying a prominent position beside Linlithgow Loch, the Palace is one of Scotland’s best known historic buildings, and the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. Although designated as a Royal Palace, this imposing fortification qualifies as a defensive Castle and was built to be just that.

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.

Linlithgow Palace is an Historic Scotland Category A Listed Building (HB Number 37469).
