Clardale (or Claredale) is a house in Falkland. It occupies the whole western side of Rottenrow and has frontages on the High Street and South Street West. It was previously several houses, the northern-most of which (nearest the High Street) was previously Colin Herd's shop, which was one of the main suppliers to the House of Falkland.[1]

The end section facing South Street West where there is now a plate glass window, was once used as a garage.[2]
