My wife and I stayed in the Covenanter Hotel as part of a tour we were doing of the Outlander film sets. From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, we could not have been better catered for, there is a very welcoming, beautifully decorated and friendly bar complete with wood burning stove, which serves a good selection...

OK we stayed here because of Outlander and probably would never have visited otherwise. That said, we really enjoyed our stay in 'Mrs Baird's B&B'. This isn't a luxurious place but our room was comfortable, warm, clean and more than good enough for an overnight stay. We also had an evening meal at The Covenanter and it really impressed us,...

We didn't stay here, but stopped by as part of a Trafalgar Tour- Celtic Filmscapes. The village of Falkland was extensively used as the town where Clair and Fank are having their second Honeymoon in Episode 1 of Outlander. The Covenanter Hotel was transformed into Mrs. Baird's B&B for the show. The town has a beautiful time out of place... More

On our way to Falkland Palace we stopped by in this place and I'll tell you this, it's a great place to have morning coffee before you go on a long tour of Falkland Palace which is just across the road from this place.

Falkland is a step back in time, fantastic for walks or just looking at buildings that have not had cladding added , plenty of pubs for a small place all with their own history and style ,you also have a water fountain that you cant miss ,go have fun and enjoy

It was a thrill to stay at this hotel as we loved the Outlander series. The facade is appealing but the inside is quite modern. The rooms are very nicely furnished and comfortable but nothing like the ones shown in the film. Our mattress was a bit lumpy but the bathroom was spacious and everything else was fine. Falkland is... More

Pretty basic food really with the usual serving of boring bland mixed veg. We used to come here often & thought we would try it under new management but wouldn't rush back. My cod wrapped in parma ham sounded good on the menu but it was over cooked & i didn't like the ratatouille it was served with. My husband... More

My room was quite large, the bed comfortable. There isn’t much of a view but a roof but the size of the room makes up for it. Nice bathroom with heated towel rack but no tub, only a shower. Not enough plugs, though. The wifi was really fast and free. They did need curtains that kept out the light. The... More

Decided to eat out at the last minute and booked the Covenanter restaurant. The evening menu had lots of choice, some traditional Scotish and world cuisine. Helpings large so make sure you're hungry! The children's menu was very good value also. The servers were very helpful and friendly.
