Scone - Scotland

After Edinburgh we went driving up to Invergerry and on the way we stopped at Scone Castle where they have crowned the kings of Scotland for the past...well at least since 1306 when Robert the Bruce was crowned. And the castle is still being lived in which I find really interesting, wouldn't it be a kick to live in a castle!?

Here is a replica of the stone where they were crowned the original was said to be carried off by the English in 1328, although some think that the Scots buried the original and a fake was sent in its place.

There were a lot of peacocks at the palace too.

After we left Scone we drove for a while, the scenery was really beautiful - this is one of the stops we made.

Next stop - Glengarry Castle.
