Did you Know?
The cultivation of Scone Palace grounds began in the 12th Century, with more formal landscaping taking place in 1805, just shortly before the world famous tree planter David Douglas, born in the village of Scone in 1799, came to work on the grounds as a gardener. His prolific seed collecting career that took him around the globe helped to create some of the magnificent landscapes that over one hundred thousand visitors to the Palace still enjoy today, some 220 years later.
