The Stone Of Destiny?…The Arlington Bar?

Fun Fact

From 840AD to 1296 the Stone of Destiny lay in Scone Palace in Perthshire and was used in crowning ceremonies of Scottish Kings. However King Edward I of England removed the stone and took it to Westminster Abbey in London and it remained there from 1296 until it was stolen by 4 Glasgow students in 1950 and taken to the Arlington Bar. The students made a replica of the stone and one of the stones was returned to Westminster Abbey the following year. The stone has now been moved from Westminster Abbey to Edinburgh however the second stone is still in the Arlington Bar. Is it the copy or the original? Either way it’s a good story and if you are in the Arlington Bar in Woodlands Road worth looking out for.
