Mr Peacock

Here are a few shots of a peacock taken recently at Scone Palace in Scotland.  Although native to Southern Asia and Malaysia, they are commonly seen in  stately homes, palaces and castles in the UK.  Owing to their spectacular appearance and fan like rear feathers it is no surprise that the Chinese then the Europeans just had to import them.

Scone Palace, Scotland

Here are a few shots of Scone Palace in Scone, Perthshire.  The Palace, constructed in 1808, is currently the home of the Earl of Mansfield and was the ancient crowning place for Scottish Kings on the stone of Scone (now in Edinburgh Castle).  Kings crowned here include Macbeth, Robert the Bruce and Charles II.  The palace is set amongst beautiful gardens which include the unique tartan maze.   Again, no interior photography was permitted, so only external shots of the Palace are in this post; however I think they show the palace and grounds in a spectacular light.
