Scone Palace has an exciting and colourful history as one of Scotland's most important stately homes. 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 it one of the most popular tourist attractions in both Perth and Scotland. Placed in the heart of Scotland and 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.

The new Balvaird apartment is an ideal base for golfing breaks, country sporting holidays, wedding parties and short breaks.

The apartment sleeps up to six guests in 3 beautifully decorated, en-suite bedrooms. You can relax in the comfortable sitting room with magnificent views over the Parklands to the river Tay or make use of the Sky television, wifi facilities, or take a tour of the Palace and Grounds.
