The Incorporation attended Linlithgow Riding of the Marches which had been postponed for the last two years. Deacon Andy and Clerk Robin attended the full day as guests of the Court of the Deacons of the Ancient and Royal Burgh of Linlithgow. It was a full day of celebration with the Theme being “it is good to be back”. The day was hosted by Provost Elizabeth Park, Chair of the Deacons Court and first female Provost of Linlithgow.
After a hearty Breakfast the Procession made their way through Linlithgow to the West most boundary at Linlithgow Bridge where there Toasts and replies to the Marches and the Brig and to the Dyers and other Fraternities.
The procession then made its way back through Linlithgow and then onto the East most Boundary at Blackness.
Here there was a laying of wreaths at the war memorial followed a reception with Toasts and replies.
At Blackness Hill, the Provost installed the Baron Baillie.
Lunch then followed with a Toast to the Royal Burgh of Linlithgow.
Once back in Linlithgow the procession walked through Linlithgow three times before the final speeches and Reports at the Cross Well.
A great day was had by all.
