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

We stayed at this site in unusual circumstances having decamped from another due to high winds damaging our tent. We therefore only booked one night that afternoon and it should have been a straightforward 2 hour drive to Perth, but unfortunately a crash & road closure on the A9 lead to a long diversion via Fort William and a race to get to the site before the 11pm gate closure. We called the site & they were really helpful, but in the end we were about 10 minutes late and the gate way locked for the evening. However staff were still around & allowed us to walk our tent & bags to the closest pitch and pitch quietly in the dark - a challenge, especially on discovering a broken pole from the wind damage from the previous site, but we managed it. Aside from saying the facilities we saw were clean & more the adequate can't comment greatly more on the site itself, but my only other observations is that nothing on this website made it clear that the site was in the same location as Perth Racecourse - in the dark & racing for the gate curfew, we perhaps missed signs, but we found Scone Palace main entrance easily enough by the postcode, but were then thrown by the racecourse and it took some time & a couple of attempts to actually find the entrance, so perhaps the directions/info on this site and the signage on the ground could be made a little clearer.

Friendly welcome by site managers.

This review is for Scone

Friendly welcome by site managers. Shower block (pink for girls, blue for boys!) lovely and warm, and good hot showers. An easy walk to the Palace itself, with a 'quick' way back to the site. We needed to have a microwave delivered to the site, as ours in the motorhome had burnt out - we ordered a new one on Amazon for delivery. This was no problem, despite the fact that it came after 12 noon, which is the time to vacate the site. There is a parking area outside the site, but still in view, so we parked there to wait for the delivery.

Excellent stay ... well worth the fees.

This review is for Scone

Excellent stay ... well worth the fees. A wonderful surprise with flowers in bloom in October despite downpours of rain. Toilet and shower facilities spotless and kept warm and pleasant to use. The site was quiet and no events were ongoing at Perth racecourse which is adjacent to the site. Perth museum is a class day out and also with the McManus museum hosting the McMenace Beano comicbook event this made our stay
