Scone Palace

Some 1500 years ago Scone (pronounced scoon) was the capital of the ancient Pictish kingdom and from the middle ages on the Kings of Scotland were crowned there, on the Stone of Destiny. The palace standing there today was built in the early 1800s and is set in lovely grounds and gardens which include a pinetum (a pine copse featuring varieties from all over the world) and a maze. Guided tours of the palace and its treasures are available, along with a shop and informal dining restaurant situated in the old kitchens. Scone Palace is only 35 minutes from Gleneagles.
