“Brilliant”

St. Michael's Parish Church
Ranked #3 of 26 things to do in Linlithgow
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 May 2018

Walk in the footsteps of the famous and historical. Before the palace next door had a chapel, and even on occasions afterwards, St Michael's is where the monarchs of Scotland would pray, so when you step inside you really are stepping in the footsteps of monarchs

What a beautiful church. The scale, proportion and internal architectural details embrace the visitor. The stained glass is jaw droppingly gorgeous!
The helpful, friendly and knowledgeable volunteers inside were wonderful and added hugely to our visit.

After going through Linlithgow Palace it just makes sense to enter St Michael's next door. Very friendly people helping inside and of course a lot of intriguing history. The modern stained glass on one side was unique. All in all a delightful visit.

Stopped in before visiting Linlithgow Palace late one afternoon. Very knowledgeable docents. Beautiful building with absolutely unique "crown" atop the tower. Located within the Palace grounds. Well worth a visit!

Alone it's a very nice church but if you look into the history especially with the Mary Queen of Scots connection it;s pretty interesing. Its right next to the palace so you can do both in the same day easy.
