From Our Editors

Shakespeare wrote “So, thanks to all at once, and to each one, whom we invite to see us crown’d at Scone.” Once the crowning place of the Kings of Scots, Scone Palace is the home of the 'The Moot Hill' where Robert the Bruce was crowned in 1306. The palace houses an extensive collection of antiques, paintings and rare artefacts for visitors to enjoy, and is set in the Mansfield Estate, which stretches from the River Tay to North Logiealmond. The grounds host the Murray Star Maze, made up of 200 beech trees in copper and green to create the illusion of tartan, and the adventure playground where kids can play and explore. Families of two adults and up to three children can also meet some four-legged residents, including June the donkey, miniature shetland ponies and highland cattle.

The cafe is lovely, the staff are lovely! The grounds are beautiful and my children loved the peacocks.

Don't charge so much for OAP's to park their car in the carpark. We would go more often just to walk around the grounds and maybe have a coffee, but it costs too much to park our car.

Inside of the palace could do with something "more" to make it less boring. Pictures of family members seemed like they were filling space where as more could have been made of the "Stone" and its relationship to the palace. Story of Belle interested me - had this not been there there wouldn't have been much to hold my attention but I understand that this was a temporary exhibit only. Didn't seem to be a lot for children inside the Palace.
