We stayed at the Balvaird Wing, Scone Palace for a week in August, by we, I mean me, my son, my granddaughter and her partner plus their 2 children aged 4 and 12 at the time. At the end of the holiday, we all agreed that one day we would like to return.
The palace and its surrounding grounds were not only beautiful, but immaculately kept.
The beautiful river Tay runs through the estate and fishing can be arranged.
The place is tranquil and peaceful, but not isolated.
The small, but perfectly formed city of Perth is just 2 miles away.
There is a great atmosphere at this place – it is warm, friendly and welcoming ,as were the staff we met.
The accommodation was first class, extremely comfortable beds and decent linens.
The kitchen was very well equipped .
The apartment is huge, and my great grandchildren said it was the best place ever to play, hide and seek. There is a carefully curated collection of books, magazines, and DVDs.
We would normally go abroad on holidays and this was quite a departure for us.
It is a credit to all concerned that everyone expressed a desire to return.
I cannot recommend the Balvaird highly enough.
