  • "Just spent a lovely week at Stable flat."

    Would highly recommend it. Dog friendly. The gardens are beautiful as was the Pinetum. Owners very accommodating. Suggestion would be to have some paper information on local attractions. Also recommendation for places to eat. But we asked and got couple recommendations. It was the best Sykes accommodation we have stayed at to date. We wish the family all the best for their up coming care project.

  • "Wonderful location with excellent genuinely caring friendly hosts."

    Very comfortable dog friendly property that met our needs. Only constructive feedback would be to oil the creaking front door. Would return as the stay was perfect.

  • "Lovely stable flat in wonderful grounds."

    Owner was there if we needed anything. My only moan would be that it said there was a DVD player and there wasn’t. This would have been useful due to very poor tv reception. We did manage to get our own Google chrome set up to their Wi-Fi which was very good. The weather was particularly good. So managed to get out and sbout

  • "Absolutely perfect property."

    Much nicer and bigger than the photos make out. The beds are comfy and pretty much everything you can think of is provided. Cleanliness was really good too. The owners were lovely, not intrusive but there should you need them. They even provided sledges for our children when it snowed! The WIFI worked well, handy for teenagers. Amazing surroundings with excellent walks. Great for wildlife. Super quiet at night. The flat was lovely and warm as well. We are already planning on coming back.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. Property Owner

    Great base for exploring the area. Owner Stephen was on hand and very helpful. Lovely grounds. Access would be a little difficult for those not confident on stairs.

    I agree the stairs could be a challenge if you are not steady on your feet. We try to keep them swept and in the winter we salt them to make sure they are not icy. Property Owner

    Very well equipped and cosy and in a beautiful location. We particularly enjoyed the grounds and the walk to the pinetum. A very small criticism would be that the kitchen was so well equipped there was no cupboard space for our own food.

  • "I think the photos and description on Sykes' website don't do this place justice."

    The apartment is set within the extensive grounds of a beautiful house and if you are a nature and animal lover it is the perfect place for a holiday. We absolutely loved visiting the horses in the stables right next to the apartment and the two gorgeous alpacas. We also had walks through the gardens up to the pinetum. The apartment itself was extremely clean, cosy and comfortable and very well equipped. If you are looking for a base to explore magnificent Perthshire I cannot recommend The Stables highly enough.

The only worry for me was my mum is 75 and still reasonably fit but the stairs up to the flat where for her a wee bit difficult . I’ll defiantly be returning would love to see it in summer .

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.
