  • Presents➖ Huntingtower Castle, Perth 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
Huntingtower Castle once known as Ruthven Castle or the Place [Palace] of Ruthven is located near the village of Huntingtower beside the A85 and near the A9, about 5km NW of the centre of Perth, Perth and Kinross, in central Scotland, on the main road to Crieff.

Huntingtower Castle was built in stages from the 15th century by the Clan Ruthven family and was known for several hundred years as the 'House (or 'Place') of Ruthven'.[citation needed] In the summer of 1582, the castle was occupied by the 4th Lord Ruthven, who was also the 1st Earl of Gowrie, and his family. Gowrie was involved in a plot to kidnap the young King James VI, son of Mary, Queen of Scots. During 1582 Gowrie and his associates seized the young king and held him prisoner for 10 months. This kidnapping is known as the 'Raid of Ruthven' and the Protestant conspirators behind it hoped to gain power through controlling the king. James eventually escaped and actually forgave Gowrie, but after a second abortive attempt by Gowrie and others to overthrow him, Gowrie was finally executed and his property (including Huntingtower) was forfeited to the crown. James and his young cousin Ludovic, Duke of Lennox stayed in the castle in September 1584, as a German traveller Lupold von Wedel noted.

The Castle remained in the possession of the crown until 1643 when it was given to the family of Murray of Tullibardine (from whom the Dukes of Atholl and Mansfield are descended). John Murray, 1st Duke of Atholl resided in the Castle, where his wife Lady Mary Ross bore a son 7 February 1717. The Castle began to be neglected and after Lady Mary died in 1767, it was abandoned as a place of residence except by farm labourers. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

  • Brainstorming for todays first teen yoga session this afternoon. Its so nice to have my children contributing,  hearing how they actually have listened to me and my spiritual  practises over their life time, they have taken it all in. 
Together the two of them have put together the class on what I'm teaching, I have really valued and loved their input and they've enjoyed being apart of my passion to teach. I may have some entrepreneurs in the making.

So excited to meet all the teens coming today and to share some wisdom.
