Looking for property for sale in Scone? If so we thought it may help to know a bit about the Scone area!
Scone (Modern Gaelic: Sgàin; Medieval: Scoine) [sk?n] is a village in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. The medieval village of Scone, which grew up around the monastery and royal residence, was abandoned in the early nineteenth century when a new palace was built on the site by the Earl of Mansfield. Hence the modern village of New Scone, and the medieval village of Old Scone, can often be distinguished. Today New Scone is simply called Scone. It has a population of over 4000 people and is essentially a suburb of Perth.
Both sites lie in the historical province of Gowrie. Old Scone was the historic capital of the Kingdom of Alba (Scotland). In the Middle Ages it was an important royal centre, used as a royal residence and as the coronation site of the kingdom's monarchs. Around the royal site grew the town of Perth and the Abbey of Scone.
