Snowing Moot Hill Scone Palace By Perth Perthshire Scotland [00:34]
Tour Scotland Winter video of snow falling on Moot Hill on visit to Scone Palace by Perth, Perthshire. From the time of Kenneth MacAlpin, who created the Kingdom of Scone in the 9th century, all the Kings of Scots were crowned on the Moot Hill, seated upon the Stone of Scone. Even after the Stone's removal by King Edward I in 1296, the Moot Hill continued to be the crowning place of the Kings of Scots. Probably the greatest historic event to take place at Scone was the coronation of Robert the Bruce, who declared himself King of Scots upon the Moot Hill on 25 March 1306. The last coronation held at Scone was that of King Charles II as King of Scots on 1 January 1651, some nine years before he was restored to the English throne. Standing on the Moot Hill is a small Presbyterian chapel. Like the Palace, it was restored in Gothic style around 1804. A replica of the Stone of Scone sits upon the Moot Hill, marking the site of the original.

This Scottish castle was was built in the early 16th century, by an offshoot of the Lindsays of Crawford. In 1666, Andrew Lindsay of Evelick was created a baronet, and his 2nd son Thomas was the victim of a particularly brutal murder here at the hands of his step brother James Douglas. During a game, Douglas stabbed Lindsay 5 times, then held the dying youth under water in a burn before finally dashing his brains out with a rock. No doubt Douglas suffered from a dysfunctional family and a disadvantaged childhood! The last of the Lindsays of Evelick drowned in 1799
