Play a round in Glenrothes
Nicknamed Silicon Glen for its contribution to the tech industry, this new town in central Scotland was developed in the 1950s and 60s.
Although it’s industrialised, Glenrothes isn’t short of green spaces and is a big draw for golf enthusiasts. Balbirnie Park Golf Club is set within acres of beautiful parkland, while Glenrothes Golf Club offers a testing course with wonderful views of the Lomond Hills and Firth of Forth.
Admire the splendour of Falkland Palace
Standing in the Nearby village of Falkland, this magnificent 16th-century palace was a favourite haunt of the Stuarts, especially Mary Queen of Scots who enjoyed the hunting and tennis.
Admire the craftsmanship of the turrets and archway, and exquisite Chapel Royal, before discovering the oldest original real tennis court in Britain and going for a stroll around the pristine garden and orchard.
Go hiking on the Lomond Hills
Covering 25 square miles of moorland, lochs and farmland, the Lomond Hills offer fantastic walks and picnic opportunities. Climb East Lomond Hill from Falkland village or head west for a trek to West Lomond Hill. Whatever the season, the views are breath-taking, and on a clear day you can see all the way to Edinburgh.
