Falkland is a town situated at the north foot of the East Lomond Hill, in the heart of the Kingdom of Fife. The town received its Royal Charter in 1458. Falkland is small but picturesque, with traditional shops, restaurants, pubs, hotels and lodges. Its unique charm and history led to Falkland being recognised as the first conservation village in Scotland. Architecturally the burgh is of great interest with many houses being over 300 years old having the thatched roofs replaced with pantiles. The layout is typically medieval with main street and narrow cross wynds. There is the Old Town House, Moncreif House, the Parish Church and many more. In the 14th century the Macduff’s castle ruled from this strategic site, foundations of the castle can be traced in the grounds of Falkland Palace. The Palace was built by King James II, one of the finest examples of French renaissance architecture. It was built to accommodate the royal court and used mainly as a hunting lodge. Fire destroyed the east range of the palace in 1654 and the court never returned. The National Trust for Scotland restored the palace in 1954. Britain’s oldest tennis court was built here in 1539, there is a Horsemarket, a cricket club and a nine hole golf course
