Scone Circular, Scone near Perth

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This fine circular walk was created in 2005 to celebrate the bi-centenary of the moving of Scone from its original position near Scone Palace. It includes an ascent to, not just one but two hilltop monuments - Macduff's folly and the Lynedoch Obelisk, both with excellent views. The gentle descent leads over the golf course before a final meander through Scone itself.


Paths including on golf course, minor road, one very section; can be muddy in places.
