Once the seat of Scottish parliaments and crowning place of Kings, Scone is a place that breathes history, boasting its own Palace, which is home to the Earls of Mansfield. Poised over the River Tay, the palace is an interesting visitor attraction overlooking 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 fair city of Perth, with its acclaimed open spaces, riverside walks and many cultural attractions including a Victorian theatre and a contemporary concert hall, only 2 miles away. There are many RSPB sites and National Trust properties close by. The village of New Scone sits close to the A94 only 2 miles North of Perth, giving easy access to explore Perthshire, Angus and coastal Fife - St Andrews is a popular tourist destination only 35 miles East, making this charming cottage an idyllic base to discover this glorious area of Scotland.
