Falkland Palace

Falkland Place has been the palace of Kings for generations, some willingly in the case of James IV and V and some not so willingly as with the imprisoned King Robert III. King Robert was held captive at Falkland long before it became the Renaissance building you see today. Now managed by the National Trust for Scotland, Falkland Palace is open all year but you should check opening times as these differ throughout the year.

Balgonie Castle

Located on the banks of the River Leven lies Balgonie Castle, dating back to 1360 it has been home to a number of Scottish families over the last 700 years. As with any castle of this age, it is full of history and even has its own ghost, but, it is more modern events that have thrust this castle into the limelight. Used as a location to film the TV Series 'Outlander', it is now a must see on the Outlander trail. The castle is privately owned and tours are Wednesday - Sunday 12.00pm - 5.00pm. You might be lucky enough to be shown around by the Laird himself.
