|The pretty village of Falkland lies in the shadow of East Lomond Hill.
The village has maintained it's
medieval layout and many of the houses date from the 17th and 18th centuries.
The Royal Palace at Falkland was a hunting retreat of the Stuarts, from the
reign of James I to James VI. Although it fell into neglect with the Union of the Crowns,
when James VI moved to London, much of the main structure remains
including some of the world's oldest 'Real Tennis' courts. The village caters for
visitors with several tearooms and antique shops.
The Palace is open to visitors from April to late October.Tel: 01337 857397
