Re: Separate Scottish Coronation?

Indeed yes Scotland had their own coronations. The first King of Scots to have a coronation was Kenneth McAlpin or Kenneth I to give him is regnal title. He was crowned at Dunkeld, in Perthshire. Kenneth's reign is dated from 843 to 858, but as with most early history these are debatable. Some historians say his reign began in 848.
As Charles says, the last monarch crowned in Scotland was Charles II, whose coronation took place at Scone Palace in Perthshire on New Year's Day 1651.
The Scottish Regalia that are on display at Edinburgh Castle were first used together at the coronation of the nine-month-old Mary, Queen of Scots in 1543, and subsequently at the coronations of her infant son James VI (and I of England) at Stirling in 1567 and her grandson Charles I in 1633 at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
