The ruins of Linlithgow Palace are situated in the town of Linlithgow, West Lothian, Scotland, 15 miles (24 km) west of Edinburgh. The palace was one of the principal residences of the monarchs of Scotland in the 15th and 16th centuries, and the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. Although maintained after Scotland’s monarchs left for England in 1603, the palace was little used, and was burned out in 1746. It is now a visitor attraction in the care of Historic Scotland.
An earlier reconstruction of Linlithgow Palace undertaken by Education Scotland and Historic Scotland is now being developed further by ourselves, we have further developed the Palace model and added more detailed terrain data.
Using the model as an educational tool to develop pupils understanding of this important Scottish Palace, we have been working with with local School, Linlithgow Academy.
