Scone Palace is much more than a historic building. This is a destination that oozes history and atmosphere. It’s not about the grandeur, it’s about the importance of this place in Scottish and UK history.
The spectacular location on the banks of the River Tay is another attraction. This makes its 100 acres a favoured destination for festivals and large events, such as the Rewind Scotland music festival, the Scottish Game Fair and even a Festival for orchids.
Its royal connections are fascinating. Inside, visitors can walk along the Long Gallery, once the longest room in Scotland where Charles II proceeded to his Coronation and Queen Victoria witnessed an early demonstration of curling.
Scone Palace also offers the chance to taste its own home grown produce in the Old Kitchen Coffee Shop. There may be scones on offer but remember that the palace is pronounced “skoon”!
