Where It All Went Wrong

The most famous thing about Linlithgow is Linlithgow Palace, former home of Mary, Queen of Scots. She was kidnapped, and executed on the orders of the English sovereign, Elizabeth. And that act of terrorism set us on the path to where we are today.

Plus ca change, plus la meme chose.

    Linlithgow looked so charming to me, and not just the ruin of the palace. Wish I had had more time to explore it.
