Pride & Passion Linlithgow has already achieved a lot and have plenty of ideas on how to further improve visitors' experience of Linlithgow. Linlithgow has lots on offer and we aim to encourage day visitors to stay a bit longer and hope that those who do stay will extend their visit to several nights to take in all the attractions. Linlithgow is close enough to Edinburgh, Stirling and Glasgow to serve as a hub when visiting the Capital and Central Scotland.
