Crag features

Pristine often Sharp Gneiss on the well travelled problems...expect to lose skin!!!

Landings tend to be flat and good. 

The walk up to the boulder can be soggy so pack yer wellies.


For Picture Topo's of Ruthven look in page 2 of The Photo Galley.



Approach notes

From the A9 just south of Inverness take the turning toward Fort Augustus B851 toward the Village of Farr, keep going through Brinmore untill you reach Crouchy there is a Sign for Loch Ruthven Nature Reserve. follow this down the single track road and use the Reserve Car Park.....The big boulder up the hill IS Ruthven Boulder.




Access Advice

Once again i have had to clean up the mess of a firepit left over by climbers{ And YES it was folk bouldering as it was confirmed by a local resident } PLEASE PLEASE  clean up after yourself.  

It must be noted that the Ruthven Boulder is on RSPB land, Loch Ruthven Nature Reserve{The carpark we use} is designated as a Special Protected Area (SPA), RAMSAR and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI)

Please treat this location with the respect it deserves.
