Parish of Falkland
The historic Parish of Falkland, shown in yellow on the map, covered a much wider area than the Royal Burgh of Falkland, shown in brown, and included Newton of Falkland and Freuchie. The northern boundary of the parish was roughly the River Eden.
Officially the parish no longer exists (the current Community Council area, shown by the red outline, has somewhat different boundaries) but it is still a useful way of classifying historic buildings. The Falkland Estate has had various boundaries at times; the green outline shows an early-21st century state.
