We had no trouble finding the Palace. Ample parking is available with clean and modern toilet facilities immediately available upon parking (next to parking area). Tickets may be purchased in advance, or purchase the "Treasure Ticket 2015" that can be used for entrance into Scone Palace, Glamis Castle, and Blair Castle. Very well preserved rooms and furnishings exude the wealth... More

Scone Palace is very interesting and well worth a visit. It has beautiful gardens, a small chapel and amazing gigantic trees. Today was our second visit. You have to pay to look round the castle.

This is the historical site of crowning Scotland's royalty. The palace and grounds are lovely. Rhododendrons are magnificent in the spring, but the grounds are beautiful even without blooms. The docents in the palace are informed and enthusiastic.

We've learned when visiting these magnificent properties to split the visit if at all possible to avoid exhaustion! This trip to Scone Palace was to visit the grounds, next trip will be for indoors. The property could be far better signposted as it is very difficult to find even with sat-nav. Otherwise this is a top-notch attraction! Clean conveniences, easy... More

Scone Palace is lovely to visit at any time of year. It is situated close to Perth and so in a great location. At this time of the years, their many types of rhododendrons are blooming and are a sight to be seen. There are beautiful trees in the Arboretum and peacocks and playparks for the kids. Picnic areas and... More

We had trouble locating this place.It seemed to depend a great deal on the direction of approach and our sat nav got a bit confused.I think they may have changed entry arrangements.The effort was well worthwhile,7 or 8 rooms on display and all well presented.As the traditional place where Scottish Kings were crowned,the palace and grounds are a good visit...

We went to Scone to see the spot where the Kings of Scotland were crowned, but we were surprised when we ended up enjoying the history of the house a bit more. The guides dotted around the rooms were very knowledgeable and were happy to tell you stories about the history and owners of the house. We found the discussion... More

We attended on a slightly drizzly and windy day with a 2 and 4 year old. Quick whistles top tour of house as kids not really interested. Great adventure playground with lots to do- on a good day. Didn't try the maze due to the weather. Would recommend on a sunny or fine day but would only take a couple... More
