Midway between the political centres of Edinburgh and Stirling, Linlithgow was the home of Scotland's monarchs. James V and Mary Queen of Scots were both born there and all of the Stewart kings lived there prior to the Union of 1603. It was the most magnificent palace in the kingdom, a fact confirmed in 1539 by Mary of Guise who felt at home in this Scots chateau and declared that, "she had never seen such a princely palace". Linlithgow Palace has a fairytale setting on a lochside promontory above the wealthy burgh that David I founded in the twelfth century.

High Street is strongly featured with several crowd scenes such as the Cross at the Riding of the Marches in 1900. It's also possible to see buildings which have long gone such as the Golden Cross Cafe, patronised by Robert Burns, the Cunzie Neuk, the White House and the old Burgh School. Businesses featured include the local gasworks company, James Allan bakers and the Nobel explosives company. The town is pictured on the day George V visited in 1914 with space also given to Katie Wearie's tree, a well-kent Linlithgow legend. Blackness and Winchburgh villages complete the picture.

Lothian Historical Guide. This region of Scotland is situated in the south-east of the country, its boundaries marked by the Lammermuir hills, the North Sea and the Firth of Forth. The wealth of fertile soil and mineral deposits in this area ensured its national importance from very early times. With entries covering the Mesolithic Period, through the impact of the Celts, the Romans and the Picts, to the medieval and industrial ages, this book details the abundance of archaeological remains and places of historic interest to be found in this area including: Traprain Law, the Iron Age hill fort dating back to 1000 BC; Cairnpapple, a religious site used for rituals throughout the Bronze Age; the Dark Age Settlements of Doon Hill, near Dunbar; Linlithgow Palace and St Mary's Church in Haddington, both medieval landmarks; and the landscapes of West and Mid-Lothian, which still bear the marks of the early industrial age. A combination of guide, gazetteer and site maps. Its layout is chronological and each chapter deals with a different period, from prehistoric times to the industrial age.
