Stone of Destiny Consultation


Below is the description from the consultation regarding the future of the Stone of Destiny. If you would like to add to the consultation you can join in the consultation here.

The Commissioners for the Safeguarding of the Regalia are seeking views on factors relevant to the future location of the Stone of Destiny.

Perth & Kinross Council, and its delivery partner, Culture Perth & Kinross, have submitted to the Commissioners a proposal for the Stone to be relocated to Perth to form the centre-piece of Perth City Hall, which will undergo a programme of extensive refurbishment.

The Stone is currently displayed within the Crown Room in Edinburgh Castle, alongside the Honours of Scotland. If the Stone remains in Edinburgh Castle, plans are being developed by Historic Environment Scotland to undertake a major redevelopment of the display of both the Stone and the Honours.

Under the terms of their Royal Warrant, it falls to the Commissioners to consider and advise upon all matters relating to the Stone. The final decision on any proposal to relocate the Stone will lie with The Queen, acting on the advice of the Commissioners.

In order to assist their consideration of these matters, the Commissioners are keen to give the public and organisations with an interest the opportunity to bring to the Commissioners’ attention any issues which might have a bearing on the advice they may offer.

Responses are requested by 19 September 2019.
