Scone Palace

Recommended
The estate of Scone Palace encompasses Moot Hill, one of Scotland's most hallowed historical sites since Pict times. Kenneth MacAlpine made it the centre of his new Picto-Scottish kingdom in the middle of the 9C and a counterpart of the ecclesiastical centre of Dunkeld. From this time, Scottish kings were crowned on the Stone of Destiny, otherwise known as the Stone of Scone. The neo-Gothic palace you see today houses a superb collection of French furniture, ivory and porcelain.
