We had another very successful on Sunday 30th August 2015 and great weather blessed us once again.  A total of about 130 cars joined us in the town to enjoy the delights of the event, the town centre cafes, pubs, restaurants and ice cream shops!

The road run round the area this year was to the Falkirk Wheel, and our signpositng must have been fine as we didn’t lose anyone travelling there or back.

The car show itself had cars parked at and around Linlithgow Cross, on the pavement at the Vennel west of the Cross, and in the Palace car park from lunchtime and throughout the afternoon.
