About Falkland Palace

Falkland Palace was the Renaissance country retreat and hunting lodge of the royal Stuart dynasty for around two centuries.

Begun in 1450 and completed in 1541, Falkland Palace was the work of kings James IV and James V and was very much a favourite of Mary Queen of Scots.

The highlights of Falkland Palace today are its gardens and portraits of the Stuarts.
