The breathtakingly beautiful Scone Palace—just outside the city of Perth—was once the crowning
place of the King of Scots. Regarded as a national treasure, the palace has a unique place in Scottish history, and the race-course in the grounds of its estate holds an equally special place in the summer social and racing calendar.  

Set in the stunning parkland of Scone, Perth, the UK’s most northerly racecourse, has been voted Best Smaller Racecourse in Scotland six times in the past decade.

And September’s Glorious Finale, the last race meeting of the summer at Perth, is steeped in history, making it the perfect place to showcase the king among cars.

The new 2010 Range Rover is the latest manifestation of the ultimate country sports vehicle, and the best yet. Offering the ultimate off- and on-road driving experience, the most capable luxury four-wheel drive vehicle is even sleeker and more contemporary in design than before. And it’s the perfect partner for a picnic at Perth.

This September, Country Life and Land Rover are hosting ‘Tweeds, Cars and Trilbies’, a picnic at the historical Glorious Finale on September 23. And Land Rover, together with Country Life Editor Mark Hedges, invites you to join the magazine’s private guests for a sumptuous picnic at the palace—served from the boot of the iconic new 2010 Range Rover—for one of Scotland’s foremost social occasions.

Purer in design and performance, the new 2010 Range Rover continues to offer the familiar sense of security, composure and wellbeing synonymous with Land Rover’s most luxury vehicle.

The elegant interior has been finished in the finest leather and wood, and features new technologies that provide industry-leading levels of visibility and driver information.

The new TFT Virtual Instrument Panel satisfies driver needs at the touch of a button, and the revolutionary Dual View Touch-screen offers driver and passenger simultaneous different images.
On the exterior, the new 2010 Range Rover has simple, more gentle face. A meshed grill has been incorporated into a sleeker, lower front to create a wider, more assured stance.

New front and rear lamps optimise Bi-Xenontm and LED technology, and body-coloured, redesigned mirrors and new alloy wheel styles all combine to give a fresh, new and elegant appearance.
But the new 2010 Range Rover isn’t just about looks. The new LR-V8 supercharged engine is the most powerful ever fitted to the Range Rover—the ultimate in effortless and luxury driving.

The fingertip-controlled Terrain Response offers five different settings for driving
conditions, which, combined with height settings and self-levelling features, ensure that the new 2010 Range Rover maintains a level ride height even over undulating terrain, delivering the vehicle’s trademark handling and composure.

Synonymous with the rural social and sporting scene, Range Rover’s spacious interior is the perfect place from which to serve a sumptuous summer picnic while watching the sport of kings.
