There is so much going on in Linlithgow this summer!
The first trail, the Central Area Trail, starts at the Canal Basin – on the banks of the Union Canal, within easy walking distance of Linlithgow train station this is easy to reach. The trail then heads into the High Street, with displays throughout. The trail will pass by the World War I display, a particularly memorable display containing both floral planters and hanging baskets, in light 2018 marking the 100 anniversary since the end of World War I. The trail ends at the “Physic Garden”, an impressive array of plants which all have medicinal, culinary, cosmetic or aromatic uses.
Using the easy to follow map, available below or by clicking here, you can complete the journey at your own pace. The route takes you past many of Linlithgow’s excellent Café’s and shops, providing a perfect place to combine your visit with a quick cup of tea or bite to eat.
If you want a slightly longer walk, the other two trails – the Springfield Circle and South & South-West tour provide a good opportunity to continue further out of the town centre, taking in sights such as the Wild Flowers by the Union Canal.
You won’t be able to miss the beauty of Linlithgow’s Floral Trail, with 120 hanging baskets lining the lamp posts in the town centre. For the floral experts, these are mostly made up of a mix of trailing petunias and trailing begonias with nepeta, white bacopa and big central begonias.
With so much going on, now is the perfect time to visit Linlithgow!
