Ruil in Kirchspiel St. Jakobi, Wierland

The manor, which has first been mentioned in 1453, has been associated with the von Taubes and the von Wrangells. The Baroque single-storey wooden main building from the 18th century is still there, but with alternations made in the 19th century. In 1910, the so-called new manor in Heimat-style was established, which now has been returned to the von Wrangell family. Ferdinand von Wrangell, a well-known explorer and a one-time governor of Alaska, came from the manor.

By the historical distribution the manor was in Viru-Jaagupi Parish in Virumaa County. By the present administrative distribution it belongs to the Vinni Municipality in Lääne-Virumaa County.
