It's now a ruin, but it's still an interesting place to visit. Dating back to the 1300s, this palace has been built, destroyed, and re-built several times. James V was born here in 1512. And Mary Queen of Scots was also born here in 1542.

Address: Kirkgate, Linlithgow, West Lothian, EH49 7AL
Directions: From Edinburgh, take the train to the town of Linlithgow. It's a short walk towards the town hall at the town centre. Take the road uphill behind the town hall.
