Old Photograph Loch And Palace Linlithgow Scotland


Old photograph of the Loch and Linlithgow Palace, Scotland. Linlithgow Loch lies immediately north of the town of Linlithgow in West Lothian. The loch is fed by four small streams, the Hatchery Burn, the Bonnytoun Burn, the Springfield Burn, and Bell's Burn, and drained by the Mill Burn on its western side, which eventually joins the Avon. The loch is the source of the town of Linlithgow's name; the British llyn laith cau translates to " lake in the damp hollow ". Two islets in the loch, Cormorant Island and the Rickle, are thought to be the 5,000 year old remains of crannogs. Linlithgow Loch was once famed for its brown trout, but most of the sport today comes from stocked rainbow trout, regularly released by the Forth Area Federation of Anglers.
