  2. Scone Palace Celebrate Easter-rrrr Sunday with Pirate Fun Day. Arrrrr!

    3 April 2015

    Shiver me timbers! This Easter Sunday, Scone Palace, the crowning place of The Kings of Scots, is hosting an action packed Pirate Fun Day with events throughout the day for swashbuckling families to enjoy from pirate face painting to an epic palace treasure hunt where novice pirates will be recruited! Aye, it be true!

    Visitors will be greeted by notorious pirates ‘Slim Jim McConquendale’ and ‘Cut-throat Pete’ who will be looking for volunteers to join them on a quest to locate their treasure chest of gold. They will need help following their ancient treasure map as it has been 300 years since they buried the treasure on their last visit to Scone Palace while they were hunting for the precious Pearls of the Tay.
