Default The House of Ruthven

The twin-tower 15th century House of Ruthven is now known as Huntingtower Castle. It is steeped history all of which you can follow up in Wikipedia.


Six images processed with SNS-HDR 1.x and stitched with ICE. The resulting image had a lot of distortion which had to be corrected with the Photoshop Warp tool but perhaps I did not squeeze it quite hard enough!.



Here are 3 arrow slits on the wall you see above. The are not decorative items and were essential defensive features for the families who lived in the towers.

It looks like the arrow slits are all on ground level. I'm surprised they didn't make any on the upper levels. Nice interesting shots...

I think they went on the roof for that. And it would not just be arrows, all sorts of human wast products were used too!!!!

Thanks to all for your feedback.
