When James V realized losses dimensions, he fell into despair and turned to the north, followed by a personal retinue. It is reported that he first went to Tantallon Castle, which stands on the south-eastern shore of the Forth river, to bid farewell to his mistress, entrusted to the care of his wife of Oliver Sinclair, but then, most likely jumped to Edinburgh to tidy up personal affairs before visit wife Mary who was expecting the birth in Linlithgow. Linlithgow Castle, strictly speaking, the personal property of the Queen, has been magnificently decorated in accordance with the latest trends of French fashion. Hot flame fireplaces, rich tapestries and all the luxury that she could surround the emperor, met Jacob when he drove through the arch of the south gate, built on the model of the gate Vincennes Castle near Paris. The Courtyard was a fountain, frozen, but still impressive; he was decorated with exquisite reliefs with images of mermaids, minstrels and heraldic beasts, designed in a contemporary French style; it was built by Jacob to please the queen. But the king was too depressed, and it did not impress its surrounding luxury. He spent two days with his pregnant wife, and at this time ladies did their best not to let it upset her sadness, and then said goodbye and left for his hunting lodge in Falkland (Fife).
