Holiday Cottage Fife visit to Falkland Palace February 2014

Holiday Cottage Fife visit to Falkland Palace February 2014
Home to the Stuart monarchs at Falkland Palace, now run by the National Trust for Scotland, their country home for 200 years and of Mary Queen of Scots. Set in the heart of Falkland village this partly restored Renaissance palace is a great day out.
Part of the castle has crumbled, but there’s still plenty to discover inside the surviving sections. The original and reconstructed rooms are packed with 17th century Flemish tapestries, painted ceilings and antique furnishings.
The beautiful, tranquil grounds are worth a visit alone. They’re home to the oldest real (or royal) tennis court in Britain, built for King James V, as well as a gardens designed by Percy Cane.
