visit Falkland

Falkland is a village steeped in history and tradition. The club was founded in the late 1970’s after the late Michael Crichton Stuart and Keeper of Falkland Palace, agreed to lease the site at a nominal fee. Fund raising began and the two courts were completed in 1981.

 

The present clubhouse was opened in 1991; the courts later upgraded to an all – weather surface in 1999 with assistance from the Lottery Fund. It is surrounded by breathtaking views and is situated in the heart of Fife with the Lomond Hills being a popular backdrop. At the top, stunning views of the Borders to the South and the Cairngorms to the North can be seen. Falkland provides a picturesque location to learn how to play tennis.

 

Visitors to the village can enjoy a tour around Falkland Palace and a peaceful walk around their Gardens and Estate. Tourists, who perhaps feel a little more adventurous, can travel back in time and try their hand at a spot of real tennis.  There are networks of beautiful paths from the Victorian and Edwardian periods providing opportunities for visitors to explore the estate, its nature, woodland and stone structures. The paths are continually being extended and developed with activities in the estate relating to conservation, sustainability and stewardship. Local produce and organic farm produce are also available within the estate.

 

The village is well served with local shops, including a post office and a number of places to eat and drink. There are also numerous gift & craft shops for the souvenir hunters and for the sports minded, a golf and cricket club which always welcomes guests.
