The favourite country retreat of the Stuart dynasty, Falkland Palace was the scene of Mary, Queen of Scots' happy childhood years. Set in the charming village of Falkland amid the gentle scenary of the Royal Kingdom of Fife, the palace is the country's most stunning example of Renaissance architecture. Parts date from the reigns of James IV and V between 1501 and 1541 and contain some of the most sumptuous rooms of their day. The Palace is famous for its beautiful gardens, and for the Real Tennis court, built in 1539 and still hosting international championships.
