Welcome to the Bield Retreat and Conference Centre
"Bield" is a resonant old Scottish word rich in meaning.
It may describe a physical place of shelter and refuge, a pleasant environment of protection and rest. It can also express such activities as
to nurture and succour
to embolden and encourage
The Bield at Blackruthven was set up in 1997 to be a centre for Christian Spirituality, retreat, healing and meetings in the widest sense of the word.
We are a recognized Scottish Charity (SC 027462)
