  • “The cottage and location were excellent.”


    A well equipped kitchen , with everything you could need. The cottage is in the middle of the village with lots of wonderful shops and places to eat. The bed was very comfortable , and the bath worth a soak in. We did not light the log burner but as autumn arrives is ideal for cosy evenings in. There is a small offset area to the sitting room, ideal for a dog, only comment we would make is in other dog friendly cottages we have stayed in, there are some dog items, bowls, treats etc. Also as the downstairs has no doors between sitting room and kitchen,, having a stair gate available for this area might be useful to keep a dog from trying to get upstairs. (Does detract from the lively cottage just a suggestion). The couple of minor issues we found were taken on board by the owners who made contact with us before we arrived. The area were the cottage is located is great with lots of places to see and visit. 100% would return and recommend this cottage.

Follow the traditional cottage-style stairs up, to the characterful bedroom, finished with exposed beams and a wooden door to highlight the history of the building.

The furniture has been carefully selected to create a sense of freshness and elegance.

Across the landing you will find the impressive bathroom, featuring a large freestanding copper bath, shower over bath, basin and WC.

To the side of the property you will have access to an enclosed garden, with a lawned area, ideal for letting your dog stretch its legs.

As the cottage is centrally located, you are a mere one minute walk away from the local pub, and the nearest shop can be found within a five minute walk.

For attractions, you are only a five minute walk from the stunning Falkland Palace, which is a fine Renaissance palace with an impressive formal garden, filled with history, including home to one of Scotland’s most famous royals, Mary Queen of Scots.

Further afield, the cottage is an hour’s drive from the Scottish capital, Edinburgh or the seaside town of St Andrews, which is a 30 minute drive away.

About the location


Perth 18 miles; St. Andrews 19 miles; Dundee 21 miles.

Falkland is a town and former royal burgh in Fife. The town sits at the foot of the Lomond Hills in beautiful rolling farmland. It is believed that Falkland was inhabited prior to the 12th century, however the village became more prominent following the building of Falkland Castle after 1160. The castle now sits within the grounds of Falkland Palace, the former royal palace of King James IV of Scotland in 1501, and now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland. Within the palace is the original real tennis court, built in 1539, which is the world’s oldest tennis court still in use. Nearby is the Lomond Hills Regional Park, offering walking with rewarding views, while the Fife coast, with its collection of attractive fishing villages such as Anstruther and Crail, is a must-see. St. Andrews is only a short drive away and with the rugged scenery of the Angus Glens and the cities of Edinburgh, Perth and Dundee all within easy reach, this great location has plenty to offer.
