How Scone Palace is only #3 on TripAdvisor's Perth attractions is a mystery to me. This place is fantastic! We got there early so we could have a scone at Scone. Fun! The actual Stone of Scone is in Edinburgh Castle (or is it?), the one here being a replica. We really enjoyed taking pictures of ourselves sitting on the... More

The staff are welcoming. There is enough interesting features in the palace to keep children entertained. The bears are a hit. The grounds are just amazing. My kids love to let rip and run about the grounds. Wellies are a must in damp weather and the trees give shelter during showers. They have a forest-style play park as well. The... More

We got a voucher from itison and visited on 14.04.14 which was a lovely sunny day, the grounds were beautiful and lots of peacocks roaming the gardens. My daughter enjoyed learning about queen victoria visiting because she has been doing the Victorians at school. The children can purchase an I spy for £1 for walking around the palace and they...

We didn't go in the palace but the grounds are nice and maze interesting to do. Even though it wasn't summer and flowers were not out it was nice to walk around and also see the Highland cows just by the entrance.

My family and I had a very enjoyable visit to Scone Palace on 13.04.14. The castle and it's grounds are beautiful and steeped in Scottish history. The tour of the castle was excellent and the guides were very knowledgeable and supportive throughout. This is a great day out for everyone and a must if your based in Perth.

From the car park attendant to the shop assistant and to the guides in the state rooms we were given a very friendly welcome. We found the information boards as well as the guides in the rooms very informative and interesting. The grounds are extensive and well maintained with lots to look at and find out about historically. We enjoyed... More

We took advantage of an ITISON deal whilst we were in the area to visit Scone, & we weren't disappointed. You get to see most of the beautiful rooms in the Palace & are given brilliant information & stories from the guides in every room. The Palace has extensive grounds with Mausoleum & stone of Scone. There's loads of history... More
