History

There are very few places of interest in Scotland as historically significant as Scone Palace. When you visit the palace, you are walking in the footsteps of Scotland’s ancient founding fathers, both pagan and Christian. It was an important religious gathering place of the Picts, it was the site of an early Christian church and it housed the Stone of Destiny for over 400 years.

The celebrated Moot Hill at Scone, the ancient crowning place of the Kings of Scots, is located immediately in front of the palace and is crowned by a tiny Presbyterian chapel. A replica of the famous Stone of Scone sits in front of the chapel.
