Welcome to the Barony of Ruantallan

The Barony of Ruantallan encompasses all of Nova Scotia and PEI as well as the Cantons of Distant Shore, Seashire and Ynys y Gwaed.

We are a part of the Crown Principality of Tir Mara which Baronial Deviceencompasses all of the Canadian Provinces of the East Kingdom (Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador) which is part of a larger world-wide society called the Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA).

court2The ceremonial heads  of our Barony are our Baron and Baroness, Baron Guthfrith Yrlingson and Baroness (Dame) Isobel Mowbray.  They had both joined the SCA over twenty years ago in Lochac (Australia), but have called Ruantallan their home for the past fourteen years. [Read more about them, and their message to the barony here…]
