Nestled at the foot of the Lomond Hills, in the heart of the Royal Burgh of Falkland, Falkland Palace is a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture.

Rising from the ruins of an earlier medieval castle built by the Earls of Fife, the palace was a royal hunting lodge and country retreat for successive generations of Stuart kings and queens, including Mary, Queen of Scots and King James VI and I. The grounds are home to the oldest tennis court in use in Britain.

Falkland Palace offers an idyllic setting for summer weddings, garden parties and alfresco events. Guests can step back in time and enjoy a truly regal experience, all within easy reach of Edinburgh, Perth and Dundee.
