May 2010 - Falkland Scotland

Falkland nestles between the two Lomond Hills in the Howe of Fife. It is most well known for Falkland Palace. This royal dwelling was once the country residence of the Stewart kings and queens as they hunted deer and wild boar in the forests of Fife. Built between 1501 and 1541 by James IV and James V, the palace has some of the most exceptional architecture of its time in Britain.

  2. Are you sure this is in Scotland? The sun is shining & blue sky?! :-D

    I do love all the little villages and hamlets that dot the British countryside. Thanks for taking me to one I haven't been to (or heard of) before.
