  1. 2017 a bumper year for Scone Palace as visitor numbers and scone sales soar

    ‘The Mary Berry effect’ sees surge in interest in historic attraction

    It was a year of record visitor numbers, primetime TV and thousands upon thousands of scones for one of Scotland’s favourite visitor attractions, Scone Palace.

    The crowning place of the Kings of Scots saw a bumper tourist year with 115,000 visitors through its gates between April and October and a staggering 42,500 buying a scone.

    And while the popularity of its home-baked goods kept Palace staff extra busy in the kitchen, they made room for one special visitor: TV cook Mary Berry. Scone Palace was among four country homes featured in BBC One’s Mary Berry’s Country Secrets which saw Mary lift the lid on what it’s like to live in and run a national treasure.

    This week’s episode of Mary Berry’s Country House Secrets will be dedicated to long-time staff member Jean Stewart, who passed away shortly after the BBC One show was filmed there.

    Jean, the Lady Butler, had worked at Scone Palace for 39 years, first for the late Lord Mansfield and then for the current Earl and Countess of Mansfield. Jean, 75, died last May after a bout of pneumonia a couple of months after the filming of the TV programme. She is honoured with a mention in Wednesday night’s episode.

     Record number of scones scoffed as Perthshire attraction lives up to its name

    Scone Palace is known worldwide for being the crowning place of the Kings of Scots, among them Robert the Bruce and Macbeth. But visitors to the five-star visitor attraction in Perthshire are not only devouring history – they’re scoffing the Palace scones in record numbers.

    During this tourist season, which ran from April to October, Scone Palace has sold a record 42,500 scones. Given that 100,000 people pass over the Palace’s royal threshold, the popularity of its home baked goods has been keeping Palace staff extra busy in the coffee shop and restaurant.
