So it is now only 17 days until the #castles
of Scotland reopen for the summer. Todays property has really played its part in Scottish history....Scone Palace (pronounced Scoon). Scone sits on the site of a former Augustine Priory, and right back to the first King of Scotland, Kenneth MacAlpine, it has been the crowning place of Scottish Monarchs...all 38 of them. Many people have heard of the Sone of Destiny (now at Edinburgh Castle), but it was originally called the Stone of Scone, that the Monarch's had to be crowned upon. #sconepalace
is now home to the Murrays of Scone, and has been open to the public for many years. The palace hosts Games Fairs, Vintage Car rallys and Antique Fairs in a stunning setting. The Palace itself if full of fabulous works of art and furniture and historical artifacts which bear testament to its place in history. As well as the gardens there are a must see with a fabulous maze and White peacocks roaming free. Definitely worth the drive through the Perthshire countryside and you can do Stirling Castle on the way there or back!
