Falkland Ballooning

Falkland Hot Air Ballooning

Falkland Hot Air Balloon Rides

Rise gently above the breathtaking Scottish scenery and take in the subtle majesty of the grey stone Royal Palace of Falkland with its Renaissance architecture and beautiful gardens. Built over a forty year period between 1501 and 1541, the palace served as the country residence for the Stuart kings and queens – including Mary, Queen of Scots – who would retreat here to hunt deer and wild boar in the nearby Fife Forest.

You too can be on the hunt for the abundant wildlife, albeit through a camera lens, as you drift effortlessly over patchwork green fields, the eye-catching Lomond Hills and historic towns and villages that assemble to create the glorious Fife countryside. With the shimmering North Sea, Firth of Tay and Firth of Forth providing the perfect backdrop to your unforgettable balloon flight over Falkland and Fife.

Falkland Ballooning Options:

Flexible bookings, champagne toasts, the option to assist them in inflating and deflating the balloon and a luxury gift voucher are just a few reasons to consider Virgin. And the best bit? Despite being a large company, each flight is intimate and made to feel special just for you…

Whether you’re arranging a flight for yourself or as a gift, buying a gift certificate can add a layer of security. Unfortunately a lot of balloon operators are finding things financially difficult and some do not last. However, if you’ve bought a voucher then they are exchangeable and in many instances refundable. We think they’re a really smart option.

Falkland and Local Attractions

Two obvious attractions demand your consideration after your hot air balloon flight – a visit to Falkland Palace itself, now a National Trust of Scotland property – where you can explore the gatehouse and castle before soaking up the romance of the day with a stroll around the gardens, perhaps followed by a bite to eat in Falkland village (there are no refreshments at the castle itself).

The other option is of course a round of golf at the Falkland Golf Club. They describe their course as both ‘tough’ and ‘charming’ – we’ll let you decide which one you agree with! The course is a short nine hole game, which means you can fit a round in nicely after your ballooning adventure over the glorious Falklands region of Fife!

Surrender to the romance of it all…

Even if you’re a local, why not make the most of an unforgettable day by relaxing that evening on a romantic getaway. Let someone else do the cooking and the washing up. Instead, recline back into the afterglow of a hot air ballooning experience that sets the mood quite like nothing else…

Our favourite post ballooning idea: an intimate and charming guesthouse & a bottle or two of fine wine.
