Big bird at Boot Hill
Big bird at Boot Hill
Facing Scone Palace is Moot Hill, now occupied by the 19th-century chapel. The name is interesting: The gaelic, Tom-a-mhoid, means a place where justice would be administered, while the "Boot" version is more incredible but more appealing -- when all the earls, chieftains, and other men of consequence came to swear loyalty to the Lord High Ardh, they carried in their boots earth from their own lands, and piled it here, since they could only swear fealty while standing on their own land. Having taken the oath, they emptied their boots on the spot.
