Falkland Pursuivant of Arms is a Scottish pursuivant of arms of the Court of the Lord Lyon.[1]

The title was first mentioned in 1493 and it is derived from the Royal Palace of the same name located in Fife. The title is often used for a Pursuivant Extraordinary: an officer who is not part of the ordinary complement of the Court but is called to duty when needed.

The badge of office is A stag lodged requardant Gules, gorged of a coronet of four fleur-de-lys (two visible) and four crosses pattee (one and two halves visible) Or.[2]

On 6 January 2016 the Lord Lyon appointed George Way of Plean to the role as an extraordinary Officer of Arms for a period of five years.[3]
