Looking at Linlithgow
Linlithgow Civic Trust is preparing to launch its latest book tracing how artists over the centuries have been inspired by the history and appearance of the royal burgh. This highly professional book, well researched, beautifully illustrated and fully annotated is due for release in November.
The book is designed for residents of Linlithgow and for visitors to see the varied ways the town has appeared in art in its broadest sense including work by painters, cartographers, sculptors, textile artists and so on.
Trust members and all interested residents in the town of Linlithgow are invited to order pre-publication copies. In return for the advance payment, all subscribers will be listed prominently within the new book and will receive a copy or copies.

Linlithgow - Architecture and History of a Scottish Royal Burgh
Linlithgow Civic Trust has published a generously illustrated 64-page book, based on the Architectural and Historical Guide first published by the Trust in 1974, but completely revised and greatly expanded.
The book contains around 170 photographs, plans and other illustrations, mostly in colour and never previously published, giving a comprehensive account of the architecture and history of Linlithgow. It has been produced to a highly professional standard, with full annotations to each photograph, an original historical overview, and an index.
This publication is available from local bookshops for £8 or by mail order for £10.50, including post and packing. Send a cheque for £10.50, payable to Linlithgow Civic Trust, to Jean Long, 14 Friars Way, Linlithgow, West Lothian EH49 6AX. Purchase This Publication On-Line.
Walks around Linlithgow
This book has been significantly revised with four new walks included. The revised edition was published in 2014 with the support of Scottish Natural Heritage and revised content with the help of Linlithgow Ramblers.
"Walks around Linlithgow is an attractive and absorbing book providing many interesting snippets of information on local history and wildlife along the 29 walks. Scottish Natural Heritage welcomes its launch and we are glad to support a book that aims to encourage more people to enjoy the outdoors.” said Neville Makan, Area Officer, SNH.
