Scone Palace, has played a central
role throughout the history of Scotland, and was formerly
the crowning place of Scottish kings, including Macbeth
and Robert the Bruce. The palace’s 125 sumptuous
rooms house a fabulous collection of French furniture,
clocks, 16th century needlework (including bed hangings
worked by Mary Queen of Scots), ivories, objets d’art
and one of the finest collections of porcelain in the
country. It is a treasure trove of Scottish history.
The grounds and gardens are extensive and impressive
also and well worth an exploration!
Explore the castle at your own pace (there are stewards
throughout the palace and your guide will remain on
hand to answer any of your questions) and enjoy plenty
of time to absorb this quintessential Scottish experience.
