Plundered from Scotland by Edward I in 1296, the Stone of Destiny lay beneath the Coronation Chair in Westminster Abbey for 700 years. For centuries, rumour and speculation have surrounded the origins of this legendary symbol of royal power. Was this the real Stone, or merely a 13th century fake? Is the Stone that finally returned to Scotland in 1996, and now rests within the ancient walls of Edinburgh castle, just a lump of sandstone, hastily quarried at Scone to decieve the 13th-century English invaders, while the true Scottish Coronation Stone was spirited away to a secret hiding place somewhere in Perthshire?

Abridged by Andrew Dallmeyer, The Stone is Nigel Tranter's thrilling tale of the discovery and the adventures of a group of Scottish patriots as they try to ensure that it remains in Scotland forever.

    " This seems to be Tranter's only book set in modern times. It's light-hearted, well crafted and a very fun read, but still representative of his deep love of Scotland. "

    " Cracking good highland adventure. It's the first Tranter book I've read set in the 20th century..and it won't be the last! "

    " This was just okay. Interesting facts about the Stone of Destiny, but storyline a bit straighforward. I liked the ending, though. "

    " Not the best. An imaginery account of the 'real' Stone of Destiny being found by a group of young Scots in 1950s. Unfortunately they manage to lose it again. So is the real Stone in Edinburgh Castle? "
