Huntingtower Castle, also known as The House of Ruthven, comprises of two well-preserved tower houses dating from the 15th century, the first tower built in 1460 and the second one after 1480. The two towers were linked by a simple centre section in the 17th century. The eastern tower retains an original and unusually painted ceiling that dates from the 1540’s and is one of the oldest remaining examples of such work.

Huntingtower Castle is just a short detour from the A9 as it bypasses Perth. We recommend stopping here to climb the two spiral staircases that lead up to the rooftops and the (partially missing) inner floor levels. This is a castle that doesn’t disappoint.

Huntingtower Castle also has interesting legends about witchcraft and a daring leap across the gap between the towers, but we will let you discover the details at the castle itself!
