March Morning Drive To Scone Palace Perth Perthshire Scotland [01:59]
Tour Scotland March video of a morning drive to Scone Palace by Perth, Perthshire. Built of red sandstone with a castellated roof, it is a classic example of the late Georgian Gothic style. In the Middle Ages the land was the site of a major Augustinian abbey, Scone Abbey, nothing of which now remains above ground level except detached architectural fragments. This was the crowning place of the Kings of the Scots, on the Stone of Destiny, down to Alexander III. The grounds of the palace were the first place of introduction to Britain of the Douglas-fir tree species, after being introduced by David Douglas.

Watchtower Auld Aisle Cemetery Kirkintilloch East Dunbartonshire Scotland [00:37]
Tour Scotland video of the watchtower in the Auld Aisle cemetery on visit to Kirkintilloch, East Dunbartonshire. The cemetery formed the grounds of St Ninian's Church, a pre-Reformation parish church. St Ninian's was abandoned after 1659, following the division of the old parish of Lenzie into Cumbernauld and Kirkintilloch. The watchtower dates from the early 18th century, and the gate lodge was built when the cemetery was extended in 1863. The cemetery contains the graves of 38 Commonwealth service personnel, 17 from World War I and 21 from World War II.
