    • Who knows who’s royal behind sat on this stone in the distant past, it certainly looked comfortable. There are lot’s of great stories about the Stone of Destiny! According to one the original was never taken to London in the first place and certainly not the one that was returned. I was in Scone Palace last week where they offer exceediingly good scones in the tearoom along with of all things Rock Cakes! Love cooks with a sense of humour.

  1. I love it! Saw a film about the Stone of Destiny a little while back. It was about the modern day students who supposedly stole it from Canterbury and returned to Scotland (but hid it so it was never found). At least that’s how the movie went.

    • I heard this story from one of the students involved who had no reason to lie. Film got some of the facts wrong as films sometimes do but it was indeed stolen or as we Scots would say retreived and never returned. The spin afterwards was that it had never been the original and that a fake had been stolen. Owing to lots of practice the Scot’s tend to handle disappointment pretty well and usually with a sense of humour so everyone pretty much sees it as a joke against anyone trying to be pompous.

  2. Thanks for the link. Interesting article. Some of the details are different from the film I saw, but not overly. The article talks about a film coming out about this story. Is this a new film or is it an old article? The site link was dated today.
