It was only a rock, a big lump of sandstone, you might pass right by it, but to us, it was symbol of our freedom, of our independence. We all knew about it of course, we learned as children how it was the Scottish stone of kings, but they took it from us. And as a nation is suppose we'd forgotten about it. Time does that. It was history.

I went to see Stone of Destiny recently and have to say that I very impressed. I felt that the director captured the 1950s period perfectly Personally I didn't see much wrong with the movie, which I found humorous and witty with some of the actors playing their parts extremely well.
As far as any negative press re the movie is concerned I believe that there may be a Political slant on this as it may well be that Unionist political parties were a little frightened of the movie stirring up a wave of Scottish Nationalism which under the current climate may have resulted in Independence for Scotland!
They cant afford to lose us Scots you know?
We have so much going for us in Scotland and for those people who say that they are happy with the Union, fair enough, but there are also a great many who aren't and would love the opportunity to go it alone.
The time has Come
Scotland the Brave!
