This is worth a stopover in Perth! The guides are extremely knowledgeable and interesting! It truly helps put the story of the Stone of Scone in perspective! A most enjoyable part of the visit was walking the grounds after the immersion in history! Do not miss this visit!

I liked this place because of it,s natural surroundings, long history ,great peacocks including a white one. The cafe was great and the history of Scone is fascinating. Well worth a look, particularly when the Antiques fair is on ,which it was on my visit.

Scone palace has been home to the Mansfield family for 400 years. The moment you walk in you think you are entering the television wonderland of Downton Abbey. After our drive, we went straight downstairs to the old servant quarters for a great cup of tea and generous tatsy fruit scones. Once revived we wandered around an antiques fair which... More

Although my fiancee and I have lived in Scotland (Fife) all our life, we had never visited Scone Palace, but we are glad we did eventually. There is so much to see, first you can tour inside the palace itself, taking in it's hundreds of years of history, then there is the old chapel and graveyard in the grounds, with... More

A must do for all visitors to Scotland. Leave plenty of time to explore the gardens and see the white peacock. When we went there was a tour in the restaurant which was packed but the café was empty and serves fab food including fresh baked scones with a choice of homemade jams. If you are planning to go to... More
