Scone Palace

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 presnt 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.

As per usual I entered one of my images into “The Williamson Open Art & Photography Exhibition” – an annual exhibition held at the Williamson Art Gallery and Museum on the Wirral. This time though I was pleasantly surprised to receive a “commended” award from the judging panel. This is the photograph I entered, it’s a shot of Scarista Bay on the Isle of Harris in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides:
