Ruthven Barracks, Scotland, are the smallest but best preserved of the four barracks built in 1719 after the 1715 Jacobite rising. Set on an old castle mound, the complex comprises two large three-storey blocks occupying two sides of the enclosure, each with two rooms per floor.

Destroyed by Jacobites following their retreat after the Battle of Culloden in 1746, the Barracks ruins are maintained as an Ancient Monument by Historic Scotland.


The castle that once stood on the site of the barracks, was said to be haunted by its notorious lord, who was said to be trapped in limbo, playing cards with a dark hooded man.

This very scene is said to repeat itself at various areas within the location.

Do the spirits of fallen soldiers wander the grounds and surrounding areas? How about those slain within, with the continuous sieges and battles of the era?

What will the audio recordings produce from this stunning highland location?
