GREAT HALL OF ELTHAM AND SCONE OF THE SCOTTISH KINGS

GREAT HALL OF ELTHAM AND SCONE OF THE SCOTTISH KINGS

The Great Hall at Eltham (bottom) is now joined on to buildings of a much later day, but it still keeps some of its old dignity which fitted it to be royal.The windows are arranged in pairs, two to each bay, and there are in all five bays, a generous allowance of lighting.Scone Palace (top) was built 1802-12, a large proportion of the walls of the previous palace being incorporated in it.The first palace was set up 1560-1600, over the ruins of the abbey, but Scone was a residence of the Scottish kings centuries before.
