With my sister currently living in Fife I have the perfect excuse to go up to stay for long weekends and explore that area of Scotland.

She lives in a stable block conversion in the grounds of a large country estate so my family and her boyfriend's family decided to go up and stay in the beautiful nearby Falkland.

It is a typical country village with stone houses, upmarket pubs and of course Falkland Palace.

Our first morning we drove to Balmerino Abbey and explored the local village, home window shopping as they have to most amazing view over the river Tay. 

The afternoon was spent exploring Falkland and taking in as much of the outside of the palace as possible. Unfortunately it is closed in the winter but we were satisfied enough with the Christmas wreath placed on the outside of the gate.

Supper was enjoyed at The Covenanter opposite our cottage. The deco was a perfect mix of modern and traditional, keeping a lot of original elements without being too quirky.

Do you have any other recommendations in the Falkland area?
