About the tour

Join Anne as she takes you on a walk along her local High Street. Hear all about the contrasting buildings and some of the people from the 16th to the 20th century and how they played their part in history.

Meet your local guide


Anne hails originally from Glasgow, but has lived in Linlithgow for 25 years. She is passionate about History, particularly the Stuarts and Mary Queen of Scots and loves historical novels . Anne runs Mary’s Meanders Tours with Emma Chalmers & both have been guiding around Central Scotland for 8 years. They are lucky to be based in the historic Royal Burgh of Linlithgow, birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots their namesake. “The best thing about working with Mary’s Meanders is meeting lots of lovely people from all over the World with a shared passion and love of our beautiful country.” Join Anne as she transports you to the world of Mary Queen of Scots and the home of Jamie Fraser!

Anne has been guiding since Sep 2013

This was my second opportunity to tour virtually with Anne. I am inclined to when the pandemic has concluded to travel to World NESCO Sites. I love the exotic appeal and majestic look of the mountains and architecture. I am overdue for spoiling myself in a few hot springs baths.
