Welcome to the Barony of RuantallanBaronial Device

The Barony of Ruantallan is a non-profit and educational organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century. Members selectively recreate medieval culture, choosing the elements that interest and attract them. Dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, they organize and attend events which feature tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes and workshops, and more.

The Barony of Ruantallan encompasses all of Nova Scotia and PEI and is divided into regions known as “Cantons”.  We are a part of the Crown Principality of Tir Mara encompassing 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).

The ceremonial heads  of our Barony are our Baron and Baroness, Baron Perceval Gower and Baroness Admiranda Gower [Read more about them, and their message to the barony here…]
