Location

Located across the River Tay, just 15 minutes from the center of Perth, Scone Palace offers the perfect combination of tranquillity and accessibility. The village of Scone once stood within the grounds of the palace, however, when the Medieval house was rebuilt as a Gothic palace in 1803, and the landscaping of the new palace grounds took place in 1805, the entire village was relocated two miles away and became known as ‘New Scone’.

The celebrated Moot Hill at Scone, the ancient crowning place of the Kings of Scots, is located immediately in front of the palace and is crowned by a tiny Presbyterian chapel. A replica of the famous Stone of Scone sits in front of the chapel.
