The hit TV series Outlander used several filming locations in Fife, including Culross, Aberdour Castle and the village of Falkland.
Falkland is the perfect day out for Outlander fans. You can visit the French Renaissance palace where James V died and Mary Queen of Scots played, you can even see the oldest real tennis court in the world. There is some lovely cafes too, I can highly recommend an afternoon tea at Miss Daisy's!
Standing in for 1945 Inverness, you can stand next to the impressive fountain where the ghost of Jamie stood looking up at Claire in the B+B. You can have a cuppa in the B+B itself, which is actually named the Covenanters Hotel. The beautiful little gift shop, Fayre Earth, was given a 1940's facelift and renamed Farrell's general store. This is where Claire longed to own the famous blue vase. Campbell's Coffee shop actually kept it's new name and is another great place for a bite to eat.
Falkland is high on my list of prettiest villages. It's always so colourful in the summer and the buildings ooze a deep and fascinating history. Look out for the tiny original doors on the cottages and the thatched roofs. Have you visited any of
Fife's Outlander locations yet?
