Very well organised - extremely busy this year due to the wonderful weather - thoroughly enjoyed the whole day - it would be beneficial to give discounts if your attending more than 1 day on site.

I visited this attraction while staying over in Perth. At £10.50 entry, it wasn't cheap, but it is definitely worth it. The Palace itself is a fascinating look into Scottish history and is home to many fantastic items including ornaments, furniture, crockery, paintings, vases and much much more. The guides posted throughout the rooms, are attentive and friendly and very... More

This is one of the grandest and best historic homes in the UK, and therefore, anywhere in the world. It has remained in the hands of the same family for generations, a long line of nobility. Artifacts are genuine and original, and the grounds are beautiful. The long, immaculately kept lawns, and the peacocks that inhabit the grounds are just... More

So many castles in Scotland that you don't know where to go! This one was beautiful interesting and big. Worth the money. There are also beautiful scottish cows outside and peacocks going around. I really liked the kitchen garden where there were some crops. Must see

We recently visited Scone Palace which was fantastic. The House itself is kept in amazing condition and it was lovely to see the original wooden flooring of the previous Castle in the long gallery. It was very well kept outside and we enjoyed walking around the gardens etc. There was a very nice shop and café and the food we... More

Whenever Scone is mentioned your first thought is of the Stone, and the Kings and Queens crowned over it or at the site. Yes, there is a copy of the Stone here, but the Palace itself is a standard British stately home with lots of furniture, family pictures and crockery from the 17th to 19th centuries, no better and no...

An amazing place to go and see. Highly suggest going and visiting this wonderful place. Full of history, so much to see. The grounds are amazing, as well as the maze. Brilliant place. As for balmoral castle - do not go there. Could spend hours and hours in scone, easy to get lost but in a great way. Superb
