Falkland Palace & Gardens

Interesting
The main façade of the palace's south wing, on the street, is a good example of the Scottish Gothic. At the far left, the twin-towered guardhouse (1541) served as living quarters to the constable, captain and guardian. The furnished interior is adorned with painted ceilings and tapestries. The east wing was built at the same time as the south wing, to house the royal apartments. The Renaissance influence is easy to spot. As for the gardens, they are resplendent with colour.
