Historically, Linlithgowshire was the name of West Lothian, which reflects the town’s status as the county seat. Located on the medieval road between Edinburgh and Falkirk, alongside Linlithgow Loch, is the ancient town of Linlithgow. About 20 miles (32 km) to the west of Edinburgh is where you’ll find this town.
The town flourished as a royal burgh and palace centered on Linlithgow Palace during the Middle Ages. Linlithgow grew significantly in the Victorian era after the completion of the Union Canal in the 1820s and the advent of the railway in 1842 made it a hub for the production of leather and other products. While Linlithgow was once the county seat, the Council’s current home is in neighboring Livingston. Nowadays, tourism, hospitality, and heritage-related businesses have become central to Linlithgow’s downtown economy, which has seen a decline in manufacturing. Saint Michael is the city’s patron saint, and “Saint Michael is kind to strangers” is the motto. The burg’s coat of arms is depicted on a statue of the patron saint that stands on the main thoroughfare. As of the 2019 census, the total population of the Linlithgow ward was 16,499.
As part of West Lothian, Linlithgow is twinned with Grapevine, Texas, in the United States, and the French town of Guyancourt. As a result, Linlithgow pupils now participate in exchange programmes that take them to Grapevine, Texas.
Both Robert Blair (a Victoria Cross recipient) and Alex Salmond are well-known figures in military and political history (a former First Minister of Scotland, who was born in 1954 and grew up in Linlithgow).
