I'll have to look at your Falkland photos again--I don't remember any French influence.

"Scottish renaissance" sounds like an oxymoron to me, but I am clearly pig-ignorant of that part of the world.

The Scots and the French were allies (against the damn English of course) and the Stuart kings were very much at home in the French court. Mary Queen of Scots grew up at the French court and was more French than Scots. Falkland Palace is touted as the earliest Renaissance building in Scotland (perhaps in the whole of Britain) and French masons were imported to build it.
