Now the clocks have gone back and the nights are quickly drawing in, we look forward to one of the biggest events of the year...
Before we get to Christmas , there are plenty of other events taking place. In Linlithgow at the Palace, you can take part in an expert-led Fungi foray on Saturday 9th from 10AM. Bring the kids and learn more about the very nature all around us.
Also in Linlithgow, the Linlithgow Arts Guild welcome Scottish Chamber Orchestra Winds in a joint venture with selected invited players from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland for a Concert For Wind Instruments on the 30th at St Michael's Church from 19.30. Over at Blackness Castle, the popular “Scotland From The Sky” exhibition continues, bringing a selection of breath-taking aerial photography of some of Scotland’s most historic sites to the castle. Admission is included in standard tickets prices, and runs through until the 19th January.
And for the festive events, Five Sisters Zoo opens for their spectacular illuminations from Friday 15th November. You can see the Zoo in a whole new light (and even meet some special guests!).
