To celebrate my second semester being completed, I left Edinburgh for the first time since I went up to Loch Tay in January.
I didn’t travel too far, only to Linlithgow, a town about 20 minutes outside of Edinburgh by train. The main attraction? Breaking in my shiny new Historic Scotland pass. I’d heard good things about Linlithgow Palace, birthplace of Mary, Queen of Scots.
I didn’t know what to expect. I did no research on the palace, only finding out that it was there and I could get in for free with my pass.
I certainly wasn’t expecting a ruined palace. No roof, and slick stone–thank goodness it was a sunny day!
