Absolutely beautiful palace and grounds with such amazing history relating to the Scottish royals. Allow plenty of time to explore this lovingly maintained place as well as the surrounding gardens and buildings. We are so glad that we made the time to visit this historic place and highly recommend it to all.

Beautiful, tranquil and atmospheric location, full of history and interesting sights. Staff were incredibly friendly and informative, particularly the lovely French lady who assisted us so kindly in the Gift Shop. We were also accosted by a gang of curious and friendly peacocks, something of a unique experience!
