The palace was built to accommodate the royal Court when they came to Falkland to hunt in the nearby forests; Mary, Queen of Scots, was a frequent visitor. As at Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, a fire broke out during the occupation of the buildings by Oliver Cromwell's troops. The fire in 1654 destroyed the East Range.

Today the palace and gardens are open to the public through the National Trust for Scotland.

            Self contained one bedroomed apartment in an historic setting,. Near Open Golf at St Andrews The village in North east Fife was used for the Outlander series (although the house is just out of shot). Next door to a traditional pub with folk music and close to Falkland Palace. Driveway parking. Good, cheap restaurants in village. 45 minutes from Edinburgh over Forth Road Bridge, or by rail from Markinch or Ladybank stations. but there is plenty to do in the immediate area. Beautiful woodland and hill walking country. Fully equipped kitchen - en-suite walk-in shower room. Decking and outside space. Falkland Palace was the childhood home of Mary Queen of Scots and the chapel has a stained glass window dedicated to her. It is one of the few references to her husband Henry Darnley as 'King Henry'. Those interested in history can follow her from her birth in Linlithgow Palace to her imprisonment on Loch Leven. It is a very fertile area and you can explore the many fruit farms and farm shops. Puddledub Pork is used in London restaurants,and is sold in . farm shops, but if you can find the farm itself the meat is very good value. Buy a newly caught lobster from Anstruther and bring it home to cook. If it is too big for any of the pots in the house, you can borrow one from the Stag Inn. Pick raspberries,buy ice cream in Cupar and call at the Pillars of Hercules (one of the most impressive delis you can find anywhere) to choose vegetables and herbs. The village is in the lee of the Lomond hills (East Lomond and West Lomond) and there are woodland walks in the Falkland Estate. t It has an impressive range of sports activities, including tennis courts, a cricket pitch, a bowling green, a golf course, and one of the very few places in the world where you can watch a game of 'real' tennis - the game of Henry V111 described as a mixture of squash and chess, The craft shops in Falkland are well worth a visit. and Bob Beveridge the owner of the violin next door will tell you stories as well as sell you interesting antiques (or a violin) . .

The NeighborhoodFalkland first became a seat to Scotland's monarchy as long ago as 1437 when it was ceded to the Stewart Kings by the once powerful Macduff clan. A violent beginning with tales of treachery, starvation and torture gave way to a gentler, more peaceful age as the palace's royal incumbents sought pleasure in hunting and games of tennis. Mary Queen of Scots, the great niece of Henry VIII, wiled away many happy days at Falkland before her struggle to become England's as well as Scotland's supreme regent and her eventual demise at the hands of Elizabeth I. Following the Union of the Crowns in 1603, Charles I and Charles II visited the palace until it came under attack by Cromwell's forces in 1654 and Scotland was brought into a Republican Commonwealth. The restoration of the monarchy however, soon produced violent clashes between Royalist Catholic and Episcopalian groups, and the Presbyterian movement fomented by the Covenanters, the most famous of whom, Richard Cameron, was born in the house next door! Today you can visit the carefully restored Renaissance Palace and extensive gardens with original furnishings, chapel and sweeping views of the beautiful old town. A wide range of activities are available both on the doorstep and close to the village. These include golf, walks, cycling, horse-riding, fishing, ballooning, flying and visiting National Trust castles and great houses. Please visit (URL HIDDEN) for further details. Getting AroundFalkland makes an ideal central location for a variety of day trips: St Andrews is a 30 minute drive away, Perth 30 minutes, Edinburgh 45 minutes, Glasgow 1hr 10 minutes, Gleneagles 40 minutes and Dundee 40 minutes. Edinburgh, Perth, Dundee and Leuchars (for St Andrews) are all easily accessible by rail. Other Things to NoteAvailability for St Andrews Golf Open 2015: 9-17th July.
