To A Fine Country House available for
Self Catering Holidays
A large and elegant country house set amidst hundreds of acres of farmland on the edge of the beautiful and historic village of Falkland in Fife. The house was built as a manse in 1806 for the Rev. George Buist, and designed by a famous architect, Thomas Barclay. This Georgian home was formerly home to Frances Shand Kydd, and has been visited by Diana, Princess of Wales, and her sons, the Princes William and Harry.
Falkland is in Central Fife, within 40 minutes of Edinburgh, St Andrews, Perth and Dundee, and within 30 miles of more than 50 golf courses. The nearest railway station is at Markinch, only 7 minutes away, and Dundee and Edinburgh airports are within 40 minutes drive.
Buses run to Falkland, and the nearest bus stop is 5 minutes walk away.
