The medieval village of Scone grew up around a monastery and royal residence. It was abandoned in the early 19th century when the residents were removed and the new Scone Palace was built on the site by the Earl of Mansfield. The modern settlement now incorporates the village of Scone and parts of the medieval village of Old Scone. Old Scone was the historic capital of the Kingdom of Scotland used as the coronation site of the kingdom's monarchs, who sat on the 'Stone of Scone' (also known as the 'Stone of Destiny') to be crowned. A replica stone can be seen today in the grounds of Scone Palace.
