Liked furniture, clocks, china, books to better understand Scotland. Then the gardens and the maze are nice places to visit although we had rain.

Through a groupon we got 2 adults for £10. Palace was very grand and had the right amount of information. The maze was awesome.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Scone .I can only re-iterate earlier comments about the knowledgeable staff etc. Check out the old Scone cemetery , some of the headstones are a bit weird with skull and crossbones etc on them !!

Had a lovely day trip to Scone Palace, the rooms were amazing filled with interesting and stunning artefacts. All the guides we encountered were knowledgable and very nice. Had a scone and tray bake in the tearoom which was great and then walked the grounds. Definitely check out the maze when you go it is superb and great fun!

I've visited many palaces and castles and I'd say I expected a little bit more. But overall it was a great trip to past times

At present the story of one of the occupants has been made into a movie "The story of Belle", fascinating. We enjoyed our stroll through the castle and some of the grounds as we... More

Being where the Kings of Scotland were crowned this Castle has an amazing history and is well worth a visit. The staff are very friendly and are situate din each room to answer questions and explain what is in each room. The collection of china from Marie Antoinette is beautiful and for me the most interesting was a fire screen... More
