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).

This review is for Scone

The site is flat - good for tent campers. Plenty of scope for walking, with or without dogs. The River Tay is nearby - wonderful sight. Perth is worth seeing, as is the surrounding country side. The Scone race course is adjacent (but doesn't cause any nuisance). If you're staying at the site on a race day and have never seen a horse race live, take a look, an incredible sight. We will certainly return.

PART 2 Finally, we had reserved a serviced pitch and on arrival were allocated pitch number 1, this was very handily placed for all the site facilities and we looked forward to enjoying the lazy luxury afforded by a serviced pitch. Unfortunately after a couple of very nice sunny days we then had a day of very heavy rain – No problem, we were off to meet up with some friends. Upon our return however, that is when we realised that our hard standing pitch was set lower than the access roadway and the grassed areas round about. Not by much but enough that the entire gravel hard standing was inundated in about an inch of water – We were pitched in a pond. A quick look about the site did not reveal any other pitches suffering from this phenomenon, oh, there were puddles on the roadway in places but nothing that you could not walk around. Once the rain stopped the surface water eventually drained away but it took about two hours. Be warned about Pitch number 1. These notes together with PART 1 are, we believe, a fair and true comment on our first-time experience of this site. We have no wish to discourage anyone from visiting what is a very nice site, only to warn if, like us, you are not a horse racing fan, that your quiet enjoyment of the site may be disturbed on and about race days. We will certainly be returning to Scone site at some time but will be choosing our dates carefully to avoid race days, and while we cannot predict the weather, we will be asking for any pitch other than number 1.

This review is for Scone

PART 1 There are a number of points worthy of note. Firstly, we found directions in to the campsite from the main A93 are slightly confusing. The signposts are brown Tourist Information signs and all indicate towards Perth Racecourse (lettered) with caravan and tent symbols underneath which to us infers that it is Perth Racecourse campsite. Only after travelling about a mile from the main road will you see the familiar Camping and Caravanning Club sign on your right, just at the site entrance. Secondly, the Club�s Scone Campsite webpage mentions �Camping in the grounds of an ancient royal palace, in the heart of Scotland�. Hmmm, the site is about half a mile from Scone Palace as the crow flies but comfortably over two miles if driving or walking there; walking might be shorter if you are prepared to climb over some locked metal gates and ignore �No entry unless authorised� signs to get into the Palace estate. Next, as the Club website confirms, the site is next door to Perth Racecourse, separated only by some shrubbery and a line of tall trees. On the second of our seven days on site the Perth Gold Cup was held. The day before race day saw lots of helicopter traffic flying back and forward to Perth Airport, about three miles distant. On race day we enjoyed the sounds of crowds as the racing progressed Accompanied of course by the Tannoy commentary before, during and after each race. And it only lasted until tea time. Finally more helicopter traffic rounded off a splendid day. Since the aerial traffic was not evident on other days I can only assume that many owners and trainers had flown in from far and wide for race day to watch their horses perform before returning home.
