Ruthven Farm

Ruthven Farm is a traditional upland livestock farm running Blackface sheep and a small herd of pedigree Gascon cattle. We were incredibly proud to win the Cairngorms Nature Farm Award in 2016, recognising the environmentally sensitive management of the farm. Our particular focus is on habitat enhancement to encourage both resident and visiting species of wildlife.
