Scone Palace Tours

Scone Palace
Scone Palace is one of the most important historical sites in Scotland. Located near Perth, it was once the site of an early Christian church, a priory and, eventually, an abbey. For nearly 1000 years, it was also the crowing place for the King of Scots, including Macbeth and Robert the Bruce. One of the best examples of the Georgian Gothic style in the United Kingdom, the palace has been home to the Earls of Mansfield for 400 years.

On display in the state rooms of the palace are collections of porcelain, French furniture and elephant and walrus tusks from the 17th to 19th centuries, a unique collection of papier mache and fine and unusual clocks from the 18th and 19th centuries. Visitors can also explore more than 100 acres of grounds surrounding the palace, including the Murray Star Maze, comprised of 2000 beech trees.
