What’s In A Name? The Stone of Scone
Robert Bruce Rodgers owns Stone of Scone Farm. He is of Scottish heritage and a proud member of the Angus Clan. Robert is descended from Robert the Bruce, the Warrior King of Scotland. Early in life, Robert learned the value of a name and its history. No wonder he gave the farm a name that speaks of royalty — Stone of Scone.
The Stone of Scone, also known as the Stone of Destiny, has origins deep in Scottish and English history. The stone arrived in Scone, Scotland in 840 AD and was the coronation seat for kings until 1296. When King Edward I invaded Scotland, he took the stone to London where it was placed in Westminster Abbey. England returned the stone to Scotland in 1996, 700 years after it was taken, and it is now on display in Edinburgh Castle. The Scots agreed to loan the stone to England for future royal coronations.
This 336-pound, unadorned stone has been revered by kings and queens from the past to present. When you visit Stone of Scone Farm, you too will be treated like royalty. Stone of Scone Farm — Old World charm, modern convenience.
