Scone Palace, Scone, Perthshire, Scotland. It was constructed in 1808 for the Earls of Mansfield by William Atkinson. Built of red sandstone with a castellated roof, it is a classic example of the late Georgian Gothic style. In the Middle Ages the land was the site of a major Augustinian abbey, Scone Abbey (nothing now remains above ground level), the crowning-place of the Kings of the Scots (on the Stone of Destiny) down to Alexander III. Boats on the lake in foreground and cattle. From a series of Scottish views by French painter and lithographer François Joseph Dupressoir (1800 - 1859), published in London and Paris. Numbered 'PL.15' upper right.
