I keep forgetting how much I like Linlithgow, actually.

Here's yer actual black bitch:

The first time I've seen one of these directions-to-the-nearest-fire-plug type signs furth of Edinburgh, and also the first time I've seen one in metal:

A very workmanlike outlet for the Word:

It's got its share of dark alleys and that, mind you:

If you can rustle up double figures for an official walk, then you're on.

Plus, I've finished all the potted hough I got in the local butchers.

I had a look at what l might have in my collection and came across hundreds of old letters and documents relating to the Dawson family who owned the St Magdalene Distillery and built Bonnytoun House in Linlithgow. Adam Dawson was the father in-law of David Hutcheson whos shipping company would eventually go on to become Caledonian Macbrayne.

Nostalgia. My grandfather worked at St Magdalene's. He and my grandmother lived in a little house, next to the Canal, at the top of a hill off the Edinburgh Road.
