About Falkland Estate
Falkland Estate is in the ownership of the Stuart family and governed by Falkland Estate Trust. Together with Falkland Stewardship Trust – a separately governed and legal entity – Falkland Estate Trust works alongside Falkland Rural Enterprises (Ltd) to sustain the land. From land management, conservation work and building maintenance, through to visitor experiences, farming and forestry operations, and produce sales the activities across Falkland Estate are varied.
Falkland Estate sits at the very heart of Fife on the outskirts of the beautiful conservation village of Falkland just a short journey from Edinburgh and Dundee. Archaeological evidence of hill forts pays testament to the fact that settlements have been here from at least the Iron Age. It was a favourite royal hunting ground of the Stuart monarchs and home to Victorian leaders of rural development and architectural style. Nowadays, it is a place of thoughtful stewardship and education, organic farming alongside a stunning space for community recreation, volunteering and enjoyment.
The Estate covers some 1900 hectares, just under one-fifth of which is wooded, with the rest divided between arable farmland on the low ground and rough grazing on the hills. More than a third is an important “designed” landscape whose major elements date from the 19th century and can be enjoyed from a network of walks that help visitors safely navigate the estate. Whilst exploring the estate visitors may come across a range of built and natural wonders from red squirrels to the Tyndall Bruce Monument.
