Scone Palace is about 9 miles from the caravan Park on the A93 to Perth. Scone is a place that breathes history like nowhere else in Scotland.
Today, in the 21st century, it is the home of the Earls of Mansfield, and a major attraction to visitors from all over the world. Fifteen hundred years ago, it was the capital of the Pictish kingdom and the centre of the ancient Celtic church.
In the intervening centuries, it has been the seat of parliaments and the crowning place of Kings. It has housed the Stone of Destiny and been immortalised in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Poised above the River Tay, the Palace overlooks the routes north to the Highlands and east through Strathmore to the coast.
Meikleour Beech Hedge
The Meikleour Beech Hedge is about 1 mile from the caravan Park on the A93 to Blairgowrie. The trees were planted in 1745 and are now officially recognised in the Guinness Book of Records as the highest hedge in the world.
Legend has it that following the death of her husband Robert Murray Nairne at the battle of Culloden, Jean Mercer of Meikleour allowed the hedge to grow towards the heavens in a tribute to his memory.
The most spectacular time in the autumn, the sheer size of the hedge makes it impressive at any time of year.
