Scone Palace Orchid Show

The Orchid Show at Scone Palace

A vist to Scone Palace is worthwhile at any time. It’s open between April and October. Scone Palace was the crowning place of the Kings of Scotland and the original home of the Stone of Destiny which now lies in Edinburgh Castle.

On the first weekend in August, there is an Orchid Show in the grounds. The Head Gardener at the Palace for over 20 years, Peter Timony, produces a wonderful show of orchids in the Palace and is renowned for his knowledge and experience on how to grow orchids.

A Jazz Band played in the grounds, the sun shone, Scots Chef, Kevin MacGillvray ran a barbecue and it was a wonderful day out.

Remember to look at the Places to Visit and What’s On sections of our website. There are so many reasons to holiday in Perthshire.
