Falkland

[Falkland seen from the ascent of East Lomond]

Falkland is one of the most picturesque inland villages in Scotland, designated the first conservation village in the country and even featuring as a rural WWII settlement in TV drama Outlander. Narrow cobbled streets wind away from the main street, with a number of independent shops clustered around the central fountain and village square. The historic highlight is Falkland Palace, a former country home to the Stuart monarchs with interesting gardens. The village sits beneath the shady northern slopes of the Lomond Hills in central Fife, with excellent walks starting right from the centre.
