Group Bookings

We are delighted to welcome coach tours, group bookings and school groups. Due to current covid-19 restrictions, all Groups must be pre-booked. 

We recommend that you allow at least 2.5  hours for your visit to Scone Palace, especially if the weather is suitable for a tour of our beautiful Perthshire grounds, longer if your group would like to dine with us.

Coach drivers and couriers are given complimentary entrance and will receive a meal and a gift voucher for use in our catering and retail outlets.
