Falkland House Victorian Designed Landscape

Explore the Victorian Designed Landscape of Falkland Estate. The estate’s ornamental pond and the family memorial chapel are a good place to start. Each view was carefully designed to allow the viewer to enjoy every vista, as they explore this once private estate. Look for exotic tree specimens and carved stone details in these peaceful settings.

The House of Falkland, an A listed building, is an example of mid-19th century design by the collaboration of designers William Burn, Alexander Roos and Donald Beaton. In the 1890s, Robert Schultz enhanced the design by additional works in the Arts and Crafts style. Visit Historic Environment Scotland for further details. Falkland House is now a private school for boys with additional support needs.

The site is heavily linked with the Palace of Falkland, with which it forms a designed landscape and a shared history.
