A Falkland Guide is a 24-page book published by The Falkland Society in 1988, reprinted many times up to 2010. It replaced the Illustrated Guide to Falkland (1905 onwards). It includes a "Falkland Town Trail" map in its centre pages.

A new version of the Guide is in preparation for publication later in 2024. The following table shows the buildings proposed to be specially identified in the new (2024) version, subject to review. The "Number (2010)" and Description (2010)" columns relate to the corresponding items in the still current version.
