Continuing on with our Historic Scotland adventures, Linlithgow Palace was next on the list. This was somewhere I'd been dying to get a look at inside for ages, since we've walked Parsnip around the loch a few times but never went in until now. It was a pretty amazing sight inside and out - the interiors were mostly burned out in the 1700s when a visiting army accidentally set fire to one of the rooms and just...left it to burn. Lovely. Remind me never to show hospitality to the militia when Tam and I move into our castle! (Oh yeah, we're gonna have a castle. Or a cottage. Not decided yet.) There were still burn marks on some of the walls, that was pretty cool to see.
We climbed up to the tower and got a great view down to the loch, marvelled over the weird figures in the courtyard fountain and found a fireplace taller than Tam. I'll definitely be going back for more pictures soon.
