Spent a great day with a visit to the Palace and grounds. Our guide Jenny knows her stuff. I've been on many guided tours and she was by far the most informative. This made the tour very enjoyable. She has a lovely clear voice and was easily understood. Give the lady a pay rise. Also give a nod to the gardening team who are keeping the grounds looking good during autumn. 🍁

We had a great time here. Lovely grounds to walk around - we have 4 dogs so really enjoyed the woodland and pinetum areas. Unfortunately the walled garden was closed when we visited which was disappointing. We managed to book a slot in the maze - which was excellent fun for all ages and worth the £9 entry fee in itself!. Spent about 4 hours in total with a tea break - which unfortunately was outside but enjoyed a hot drink and a tasty scone all the same. Loved the Highland cows too.

Glad you enjoyed your visit. We have just opened the internal Coffee Shop which is dog friendly so next time you will be able to get a bit warmer!

Fantastically informative tour Beautiful grounds & maze fantastic Shop and cafe were disappointingly underwhelming. Was expecting fantastic scones in Scone with estate made butter, jam and cream. The reality was “mass produced” butter an “English” jam with no cream on a cold scone. Happy to give some allowance for Covid restrictions, but still really disappointed

Many thanks for the feedback and delighted to hear you enjoyed the tour and gardens. Unfortunately we have had to put some measures in place with our food offer to ensure there is little chance of multiple handling of items and our jam for the scones is currently pre packed although we do have our home made jars of jam available in the shop which is always very popular.

We went here with friends, had a very enjoyable time and felt safe with their COVID-19 measures in place. We were able to purchase a light lunch with refreshments from the outside catering wagons.Also took the limited palace tour, was very informative and learned a lot about the history of Scotland. Our recommendation: Highly recommend

This one of the best visits to a historic site we have ever had. Tour guide, older lady ( I think her name was Mary ) was incredibly knowledgeable and the palace itself is very interesting. The grounds are beautiful with trees and flowers. The café had lovely home prepared food which was brought out to us and the shop is nice, I thoroughly recommend the Scone Palace Whisky Marmalade.
