Owner description: Set in the heart of Falkland conservation village, and surrounded by extensive gardens, this partly restored Renaissance palace is the perfect place to while away an afternoon. Certificate of Excellence 2014 Winner Falkland Palace Part of the Palace is in ruins but the original and reconstructed rooms are packed with 17th-century Flemish tapestries, elaborate painted ceilings and antique furnishings. The beautiful, tranquil grounds are worth a visit alone. They are home to the oldest Real or Royal tennis court in Britain, built for King James the V. The grounds also include ruins of the 12th century Castle of Falkland, extensive gardens designed by Percy Cane and an ancient Orchard with a wild flower meadow

This is a fantastic royal palace set in a lush garden. It was a hunting lodge for the stuart queens and kings and has the oldest real tennis court.

part of the palace is restored with portraits and paintings of kings and queens - guess where walt disney got his inspiration for captain hook , a painting of Charles 1 hanging here in the palace.

the chapel has a full set of stained glass windows - coats of arms of the stuarts - plus a fine icon made by polish soldiers based here during ww2 - out of corn beef tins and cartridge cases.

This is well worth a visit if you are in Fife - on your way to St Andrews maybe - the village is beautiful and well worth a wander round and a stop off for a bite to eat.
