Scone Palace Sep 29, 2009
Scone Palace is situated 2 miles North of Perth on the A93. Poised above the River Tay, Scone Palace overlooks the routes north to the Highlands and east through Strathmore to the coast. The Grampian mountains form a distant backdrop, and across the river stands the city of Perth.

Scone Palace has an exciting and colourful history. Fifteen hundred years ago it was the capital of the Picts. In the intervening centuries, it has been the seat of parliaments and the crowning place of the Kings of Scots, including Macbeth and Robert The Bruce. It houses an outstanding collection of antiques, paintings and rare artifacts and the grounds are renowned throughout the world.

The grounds of the Palace are enormous. It's very beautiful. The gardens include a huge maze (Murray Star Maze) and the glorious botanical gardens.

I would recommend visiting Scone Palace as it holds an important part in the Scottish history. There is so much to the place that everyone can appreciate and enjoy.
