Huntingtower Castle

UK»Scotland»Tayside»Huntingtower Castle

Once known as The House of Ruthven, Huntingtower Castle comprises two fine and complete tower houses. Other buildings, including a great hall, stood beside the tower houses around a courtyard. All were enclosed within a substantial stone defensive wall. Despite alterations in the later 17th century, Huntingtower retains real treasures from its medieval past. These include one of the oldest painted ceilings surviving in Scotland, and exquisite fragments of wall frescoes. Also said to be haunted by "Lady Greensleeves", a young woman named Dorothea who was the daughter of the 1st Earl of Gowrie.
