Scone Palace has an exciting and colourful history as one of Scotland’s most important stately homes. 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. The Palace houses an outstanding collection of antiques, paintings and rare artefacts and the grounds are renowned throughout the world. Enjoy one of our History Experiences in arranging a behind the Scenes and behind the glass tour with our Archivist.
It is the ancestral home of the Earls of Mansfield and is home today to the 8th and 9th Earl and Countess of Mansfield.
Poised above the River Tay in Perthshire, 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 provides a magnificent setting for your event and we look forward to welcoming you to the home of Lord and Lady Mansfield.
