This was our first experience of a Horse Race Meeting and it won't be the last. We had an excellent day and can now understand the thrill of this pursuit. The setting was wonderful and the atmosphere electric when the races were in progress.

Not the biggest racecourse but it provides good quality competitive racing in a beautiful setting adjacent to Scone Palace. The staff are very friendly too and Britain's most northerly racecourse is well worth a visit.

Had a great time at the racing festival meeting old friends and making some new ones. Everybody you meet there are chatty and friendly. The Scotish produce bar and food stall where the public entrance is - is a great meeting place before racing.

get the bus or train to Perth and there's a shuttle bus goes to the racecourse from Mill Street.
