When you visit Scone Palace, you are walking in the footsteps of Scotland’s ancient founding fathers, both pagan and Christian. It has been the seat of parliaments, the Crowning Place of Scottish Kings, including Macbeth and Robert The Bruce, and housed the Stone of Scone.
The whereabouts of the Stone of Scone remains one of Scotland's most enduring mysteries. A symbol of great power, the Stone has been surrounded by intrigue from its earliest days. Even its origins are shrouded in legend and uncertainty.
The Murrays are one of the great families of Scotland. As soldiers and statesmen, ambassadors and lawmakers, they have for centuries been close to the heart of Scottish affairs.
