The Little Houses Improvement Scheme (LHIS) was set up in 1960 by the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) to promote the conservation of smaller buildings of merit and character. Neglected buildings are acquired by the Trust, restored to high standards and then sold on the open market.

The following houses in Falkland have been restored under the scheme:[2]
