Overview

Camping in the grounds of an ancient royal palace in the heart of Scotland.

Scone Palace is described as a breathtakingly beautiful place of power and mystery. It’s also the home of the celebrated Stone of Scone - also known as the Stone of Destiny – and our very own Scone Club campsite. Located in its vast estate, our campsite is a nature lovers’ paradise. Deer, buzzards, owls even ospreys have been spotted here. You might even find yourself sharing your pitch with one of the site’s resident black rabbits.

Our attractive, peaceful tree-line campsite has well-spaced pitches and excellent amenities including spacious showers and separate family and disabled facilities. There is a well-stocked shop with fresh rolls and newspapers delivered daily and a recreation room full of local information.

Scone Palace hosts many events and has amazing grounds, including the Lawns and Pinetum. Show your membership card to receive discounted tickets. Special rates are also available for grandstand tickets at Perth Racecourse next door to the campsite.

As well as some great walks along the river direct from site, sports lovers will be pleased to discover there are five golf courses within five miles of the campsite. There’s an award-winning Blue Flag beach at Broughty Ferry just east of Dundee. This sweeping stretch of golden sand is one of only eight beaches in Scotland to hold the Blue Flag status.

Just two miles from the campsite, the city of Perth has good shopping, a leisure centre and a theatre, while Pitlochry offers a children’s amusement park and Festival Theatre.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

We would have liked to see the office/shop open a few more hours in the day.

We would have liked to see the office/shop open a few more hours in the day. You need to take care approaching th site from the south, the Racecourse is well signposted but there is no reference to the campsite on the road at the turning (there is from the north however.

Very safe for children on their bikes, plenty dogs about but never any problem with good site controls, plenty of level ground for walks around the adjoining racecourse and only 10 minutes from the centre of Perth and a visit to Scone Palace.

The site was difficult to find due to lack of signage and being right next to the race course.

This review is for Scone

The site was difficult to find due to lack of signage and being right next to the race course. It was a race day when we visited but that does not excuse the chaos that was apparent at reception not knowing how many pitches were available. We were given one of the last two pitches or so we were led to believe. A small grass pitch no 57 near the toilet block. We checked that it would be o.k to erect a small storage tent and were told that was o.k. Our camper van was pitched over a sewerage cover and after a time the stench every time we exited the van was very unpleasant. We had a terrific storm during the night with torrential rain. In the morning the inside of the tent was under water not from leakage of the tent but from flooding of the pitch. Everything in the tent was sodden I was hopeful it was just rain water and not from overflow from the sewerage cover. For the privilege of this experience we payed �16 I think I could probably camp on a sewerage farm for nothing if that was what I had intended to do, it wasn't, .I would have talked to the HSM about our experiences but we were in a hurry and they were busy cleaning the toilet block when we left, and really apart from the chaos at reception when we arrived it was not their fault but I do not know why the club thinks siting somebody over a sewer and charging them for the experence is acceptable.

A bit surprised as to why the site is called Scone Palace? We went to Scone Palace to be told that the campsite is at Perth Racecourse! Why not call it Perth Racecourse campsite instead?
