Well signed paths through the snowdrops. If I have a criticism it is, there is nothing on the leaflets or signage about the length of the walk and if it is suitable for disabled persons or wheelchairs

Scone Palace and its surroundings are a very pleasant place to visit, especially as we were on a day trip by bus from Glasgow, Interesting place to see and the walks in the gardens are superb

Amazing history, beautiful gardens! Allow yourself plenty of time to visit the palace, and the gardens, because believe me you don't want to miss a single thing! The tearoom is lovely, and so is the food shop. Bear in mind that the palace is open April to October, unless there is a special event.

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.

I am a Perth resident, and have gone to Scone Palace many times. We have a season ticket for entry into the grounds, so make the most of it when we can! The gardens and grounds are spectacular all year round.. We love to use the adventure playground, have a wander through arches and smell the flowers. The maze is... More

There is plenty to see and do either in the Palace or wandering around the grounds. Great adventure playground for the children as well as a lovely café and gift shop. Full of history and elegance.

On this trip I got to go solo so it was an adventure for me, I grew up in a place where we just had simple things and being able to go on the other side of the world is an eye opener. The guides were great and very informative they even provide drinks to the tourist, if you're a... More
