There are few paintings which attract as much interest and admiration as that of the portrait of Lady Elizabeth Murray and Dido Elizabeth Belle, by Johann Zoffany, which hangs in the Ambassadors Room at Scone Palace. Their lives, and in particular Dido's, is brought to life by the film 'Belle;' our exhibition will tell the story of her extraordinary life.

Hi. You can pay separately fro just the grounds. Certain weekends have free entry to the grounds so you would need to check the Scone Palace website.
