About the property

Stay With Us At Scone Palace And Enjoy A Unique And Memorable Experience.

Located in the North West aspect of the Palace, this beautifully appointed Balvaird Wing provides 5 star, luxury accommodation in Scotland for up to 6 guests.

Our new Balvaird Wing is an ideal base for golfing breaks, country sporting holidays, wedding parties and short and weekend breaks. Also perfect for families as an abundance of attractions for children.

The apartment sleeps up to six guests in 3 beautifully decorated, en-suite bedrooms.

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. There is a fully equipped and spacious dining kitchen, we can arrange for bespoke welcome packs, picnic lunches or even arrange a private cook for you. A maid service can also be arrange on request.

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.

There are lots of interests for children to see and do at Scone Palace. Outdoor activities include the adventure playground and the unique ‘tartan’ Murray Star Maze. Not to mention the 100 acres of grounds and green space where children can play and burn off excess energy in a safe environment. It's why we're one of the most popular places for families to visit in Perth.

Be Robert The Bruce or the famous spider in our popular Robert The Bruce cut out in the Children's Adventure Playground (and make sure the grown-ups don't use the zip slide!).Visit our Gift Shop to pick up a Heather the Highland Cow Activity Book or buy some peanuts to feed our free-roaming peacocks.

In the Palace itself, ‘I Spy’ is a firm favourite and provides children with a fun and informative trail through the State Rooms.

Follow in the footsteps of countless kings and explore our unique collection of porcelain, ivories and French furniture.

Guests staying in the Balvaird Wing are invited to tour the Palace at their own speed, with guides available in each room to answer any questions you might have about the Palace. Outside, over 100 acres of our fabulous Perthshire grounds are waiting to be discovered. This is complimentary when the Palace is open and when closed or out of Season tickets are provided to return when the Palace is open.

Located in the 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.

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.

A relaxing outdoor space to enjoy breakfast, your own afternoon tea or a drink before dinner.


''Our stay in the Balvaird wing was perfect, we didn't want to leave!''

''We had an extremely comfortable and pleasant stay as some of the first guests at the Balvaird wing which is spacious, luxuriously furnished with a lot of thought having been put in to the decor and artwork on display. The views of the Palace grounds and surrounding area are stunning. The accommodation was a really peaceful haven for my family and I to come back to at the end of a busy day.''

''Being able to stay in the Balvaird Wing was quite literally the 'icing on the cake' on our wedding day!''

''A great place to stay when visiting Perth Racecourse''

''The Balvaird Wing was the perfect location for our 'boys' golfing break and only a short taxi ride into the centre of Perth, where we were spoiled for choice when it came to eating out''

''What a find! I couldn't have asked for more - to stay at Scone Palace was an extra special treat on my recent 'milestone' birthday''

An amazing place! To be steeped in so much history is one thing but to actually stay in the palace itself is pretty magical. The apartment was absolutely stunning and the staff were so kind and attentive. The peacocks, the Falconry, the graveyard, the Abbey and the Palace tour meant we never had the urge to leave the grounds, spending all day roaming this magnificent place. Kudos to the Murray family for preserving, in the most respectful way, the important history of this Palace and allowing us to enjoy it.
