The river and the palace

Monday 29 August: A day out, by rail, from Dunbar to Glasgow, calling at the town of Linlithgow on the return journey. Glasgow was in the grip of a refuse collectors strike (happily settled just a day or two later), with overflowing bins everywhere. The riverside was altogether more wholesome… 

An hour in Linlithgow gave me time to explore a little, finding the loch and the former royal palace – the town became a royal burgh as long ago as 1388. It might have been worth spending a little longer there, but I didn’t want to find myself having to catch a rush hour train from Waverley to Dunbar. Perhaps another day.

See ‘Return to Glasgow‘ on Geoff’s Rail Diaries for a record of the rail journey
