„Linlithgow Palace Fountain“

from the gallery of Buster Brown Photography
Description:

It is said that the fountain ran with wine when Bonnie Prince Charlie visited the Palace in 1745.
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. 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.

Love this. I used to work for "The Ministry of Works", the forerunner to "Historic Scotland" and we were based in the Palace.
