Welcome to the Bield at Blackruthven. If you'd like a place for rest and relaxation, or for prayer, reflection and healing, you'll find the Bield at Blackruthven an inviting setting.

Individuals or couples, families or groups are welcome for day visits or


longer residential stays.

"Bield" is an old Scottish word, rich and resonant in meanings, from shelter to welcome, from refuge to strength. 

The Bield at Blackruthven was set up in 1998 to be a centre for Christian Spirituality, retreat and healing in the widest sense of the word.
