Event Details

The Perambulation of Linlithgow Marches complements the official Riding of the Marches, giving townsfolk and visitors alike the opportunity to walk the line of a recorded boundary (or ‘marches’) of the royal burgh – in this case the parliamentary boundary as established in 1832.
It is an event open to all and you are encouraged to join in.
The walk is 6.5 km, (4 miles) long, and passes seven out of eight march stones marking the old boundary.
We will pass many features of historical or architectural interest.

Led by the provost, flagbearers and halberdiers of the Deacon’s Court, and the town crier. At each march stone on the route, there is a short stop and a piper plays.
Linlithgow Union Canal Society (LUCS) will be providing refreshments at Linlithgow Canal Centre (payment by voluntary donation) and the Linlithgow Reed Band will be there too to provide musical entertainment.
The Linlithgow and Linlithgow Bridge gala queen and her chief lady in waiting will be present to welcome the participants in Rosemount Park.

Meeting point is at march stone No. 1 in front of St Ninian’s Craigmailen Church on Falkirk Road (just west of the West Port Hotel). Event starts at 19.00 hours (sharp) to 21.00 hours.
