Winter Walks

From the TUT at The Cross, you can take a 4km circular, following a footpath which circles Linlithgow Loch with spectacular views on the north side to magnificent Linlithgow Palace. You can explore the Palace and Peel and walk in the footsteps of Mary Queen of Scots who was born there on December 8, 1542.

For a more strenuous outing from the TUT, you can make your way to the Union Canal basin visitor centre at the back of the railway station and make your way west or east along the tow paths in the direction of Edinburgh or Falkirk, where the 11km route brings you to the Falkirk Wheel. From here you can walk another 5km down to the Kelpies, the site of our 100th TUT.


Tag us in your festive walks under #12TUTs for the chance to win some Scottish Water goodies, and remember only to walk when weather permits and stay vigilant in cold conditions: Water Safety – Scottish Water
