The Barony of Ruantallan encompasses all of Nova Scotia and PEI as well as the Cantons of: (external links to group webpages)
Distant Shore (Pictou and Colchester Counties, Nova Scotia)
Seashire (Halifax Regional Municipality, Nova Scotia)
Ynys y Gwaed (Prince Edward Island).
We are a part of the Crown Principality of Tir Mara which encompasses 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).
Our ceremonial heads 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…]
