Linlithgow Palace


Originally uploaded by aharbick.

Definitely one of our favorite activities in Scotland was visiting the castles. There was something exciting yet peaceful about being in building erected 1000 years ago. Even our children had a great time, and there's nothing like being able to swashbuckle in a real castle when you're a little boy. This shot is out a window at Linlithgow Palace. Notewothy things, a. it was built in 1504 b. Mary Queen of Scots was born there, c. it has the largest fireplace in Great Britain d. it has the oldest fountain (not working) in Britain. Highly recommended!
