Scone Palace, on the outskirts of Perth, holds an important place in Scotland’s long and proud history. Fifteen hundred years ago it was the capital of the Picts, and for much of the intervening period it was home to the Stone of Destiny and the crowning place of Scottish kings, including Macbeth and most famously Robert the Bruce.
Most of what you see today is the work of the Murray family who rose to become the Earls of Mansfield from 1776 to the present day.
For the shot below the sun came out to play, which unfortunately was a bit of a rare occurance during our week long stay visiting Perth and Stirling in May this year.
