Growing up I was always interested in the Ruthven history.

It’s fascinating!

Bloody, tragic…..

But it’s more than that. It’s every aspect.
The tartan, the historical documents. Paintings and facts and things to see and study..

Did you know that before there was Dracula, there was Lord Ruthven?
Did you know it was a Ruthven who married the famous artist Van Dyck, who was famed for royal portraits?
Or that Huntingtower Castle, the Ruthven seat, has some of the finest and oldest wall and ceiling decor ever?

Or Persephone, or Poseidon…


The point for me is the ancient greeks.
All the mythology, and the stories and lessons.

I love them, always have.


And it all stems to a point that I can actually name..
Mr street, primary 6, back in the 90’s. And one term of studying the ancient greeks and I was hooked.

I am so fascinated by the various tales.
From the Odyseus, to Troy. From Medusa and sirens, the minotaurĀ and Herecules…….
