Linlithgow Civic Trust was formed in 1971 and aims to encourage the conservation of the town's built and natural heritage. It makes its views known on planning applications and development proposals likely to have a significant impact on the Royal Burgh of Linlithgow. An annual programme of social and other events is organised, including illustrated talks, visits and excursions to places of interest. Linlithgow Civic Trust has published a number of books about Linlithgow and leads the Perambulation of Linlithgow Marches project, which aims to encourage residents and visitors to find out more about our town. Linlithgow Civic Trust organises Doors Open Days in West Lothian.
