Huntingtower Castle, or the House of Ruthven as it was known before 1600, was a lordly residence for about 300 years and in its time saw much coming and going.
Beautiful shot!Sympathetic Suffolk!
When I took this photo I though it was a private residence, no signs to say otherwise, but Swissmay put me right with a link to Wikipedia, it,s now an empty shell sekica. regards scally.

Many thanks susan, I agree with your nice comment, even though this is a Castle :D regards from scotland scally
Scally, as I learned in some books of your medieval architecture in the Faculty (I'm a fan...!) this is called a Manor House more than a Castle, I supposed a term derived from the french "Manoir", as many of the words of those times imported by the norman warriors that took to the Islands their language with them... But as happens in France with the terms Manoir and Chateaux they are arbitrarely used.. The photo is fantastic, and the place also! I love your country and traditions. Best wishes, Edmundo
Hi Edmundo, If you would like a full history of this Castle click on "Swissmay,s"posting in this page, But remember we Scotch did not get invaded by the Normans,or the Romans. Who built 2 walls not one to keep us in Scotland, and guarrisoned the second Wall with thousands of Troops, for over 300 years, The Normans that got into Scotland came in on their knees craving favours from the Pathetic kings that ruled us, and even after Bannockburn, the language of Scotland was Gaelic, still spoken in the Isles of the West despite many nasty attempts to stamp it out. and far from the Normans bringing their language to Scotland, The ones that crawled and married to positions in Scotland soon took up the Gaelic. cheers scally
Sorry Scally, I knew about what you tell... I was just thinking on the words and their use in english language. Otherwise I love everything that's of Kelt origin as my origins are from regions were Kelts or Gauls had an important presence in the past. In Asturias they also play pipes! but the language was lost... Cheers, Edmundo
Hi Edmundo, I,ve had a look at your History,and found it very Interesting, Spain is more complicated than I ever Imagined, The Basques I knew of they are definitely Gaels, and the Catunlonians have a strong feeling of Identity, It is good that you now all live happily united, and play a pretty good National Football team. cheers scally
