A small and picturesque village, Falkland retains a traditional charm from its medieval roots. Many houses are over 300 years old and the layout of the streets has not changed in several hundred years.
Falkland was the first conservation village in Scotland thanks, in part, to its grand past. Mary Queen of Scots would visit the Royal Court at Falkland Palace, built by King James II. It is one of the finest examples of French renaissance architecture in the UK and has been painstakingly restored by The National Trust for Scotland.
