Beginning with Kenneth MacAlpin, in the 9th century, all of the Kings of Scotland were crowned on Moot Hill, seated upon the Stone of Scone. A replica of the stone can be seen in the left hand corner of this photo.
In 1996, the Stone was finally restored to the people of Scotland when it was moved to Edinburgh Castle.

Even with the removal of the stone by King Edward I in 1296, it continued to be the crowing place of the Kings of Scots.
The small Presbyterian chapel was restored around 1804.
There are four octagonal corner towers on the chapel.
Inside is a monument to Lord Stormont, kneeling on a cushion at an altar.
Two armored figures flank each side of the altar.
