Falkland is a beautiful medieval conservation village famous for its 16th Century palace, cobbled streets and tearooms. Made more famous recently by the filming of Outlander, it’s no wonder the fans come flocking. Take a step back in time and see if you can spot Jamie and Claire. You can even dress up in period costumes in the Palace which was home to Mary Queen of Scots.


One of the most Instagram-worthy villages in the UK. Take a wander through the charming streets built in the 17th and 18th centuries and head to the ochre-coloured Palace and incredible gardens. It feels like stumbling across a secret time zone, and has a peaceful feel, a million miles from modern day hustle and bustle.
