Falkland Palace

Falkland Palace is in Falkland, Fife, Scotland.

Falkland Palace began as a castle built by the Macduffs, earls of Fife.

King James II of Scotland extended the castle. He frequently visited it to hunt deer and wild boar.
After 1458, when James II granted a charter, the castle was known as Falkland Palace.

King James V of Scotland, in 1537 to 1541, remodeled Falkland Palace to create Scotland's first palace in the continental Renaissance style.
James V had a gatehouse added at the west end of the palace.
This was designed to function as a new entrance.

Queen Mary of Scotland, the daughter of King James V, frequently visited Falkland Palace after her return to Scotland from France in 1561.
