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 artifacts and the grounds are renowned throughout the world, making the stateley home one of the most popular tourist attractions in both Perth and Scotland. 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. Located on the second floor in the North West aspect of the Palace and overlooking the Parks, the Balvaird Wing has been newly refurbished offering guests 5 star, luxury accommodation. The Wing sleeps up to six guests in 3 beautifully decorated, en-suite bedrooms and is accessed via external and internal stairs. If you fancy dining out, it is only a short 10-minute taxi ride to the centre of Perth where you will find a variety of award winning restaurants. Guest facilities include: Comfortable sitting room with magnificent views over the Parks to the river Tay; Fully equipped and spacious dining kitchen suitable for entertaining; TV, DVDs, board games and Wi-Fi facilities; A cook and maid service can also be arranged on request. Not only is the exterior stunning for our guests at Scone Palace, but the grounds and gardens are also an experience and retreat in themselves. Residents have their own private gardens at Scone seen below along with the entire Estate when the gates are closed to visitors. A relaxing outdoor space to enjoy breakfast, your own afternoon tea or a drink before dinner. Guests staying at the Balvaird Wing has complimentary tour tickets for Scone Palace during April to October when the Palace is open to the public. Out with those months we can arrange a private tour subject to availability. More

About the neighbourhood
Perth is a historic city set beside the beautiful River Tay and located just 90 minutes from 90% of Scotland’s population. It’s the perfect place to stay whether you are exploring the city itself or the huge range of attractions and activities available across Perthshire. Perth has a fantastic selection of independent businesses offering a wide range of unique, quirky and high-quality products you won’t find anywhere else so why not combine a visit to Scone Palace or The Black Watch Castle and Museum with a spot of shopping.
