Therefore, we have put the following measures in place:

  • Please always follow physical distancing of 2 metres, with physical distancing of 1 metre in catering areas
  • Regularly wash your hands and avoid touching your face. Check the NHS guidelines for more information

There are over 100 acres of Gardens and Grounds at Scone Palace and there is plenty of room to social distance. When you arrive, you will be provided with a map of the grounds to help you get around.

There will be reduced toilet facilities available within the Palace. Please always use responsibly with one person in, one out and observing social distancing.

Disabled toilet facilities are also available. Please speak to any member of staff who will be happy to assist. 

We have a selection of hot and cold food items available, including specialist coffee, famous Scone Scones and traybakes. Hot food is served until 3pm.

Bicycles, scooter, footballs etc are not allowed in the grounds.

Dogs are always very welcome at Scone Palace but must be kept on leads at all times.
