About the location
Perth 2 miles; Dunkeld 16 miles; Dundee 19 miles; Stirling 36 miles.
The village of Scone sits two miles north of Perth, and is correctly called New Scone to differentiate it from Old Scone, which had been a medieval village based around the monastery of Scone Abbey and abandoned in the 19th century. The new village was planned by the Earl of Mansfield, whose family seat is Scone Palace, and began being built in 1805. Old Scone had been the historic capital of Scotland in the Middle Ages and was the coronation venue for Scotland’s monarchs, atop the famous Stone of Scone. Scone Palace dates from the early 1800s in the Georgian Gothic style and is a popular visitor attraction open to the public, with rooms and grounds, including a remarkable pineturn. There is a selection of local shops and amenities in Scone, as well as Perth Racecourse, the two 18-hole Murrayshall golf courses, and a wider range of shops are available in nearby Perth. Scone is in the heart of Macbeth Country with his hill fort at nearby Dunsinane and Birnam Wood at Dunkeld. The attractive village of Dunkeld sits to the north, and the wonderful woodland walks at the Hermitage offer a great day out in the country. A wonderful base for exploring the south east of Scotland.
