Ruthven Boulder or Bunnet stane is a large glacial erratic sitting above Loch Ruthven. It can be bouldered at will and all the problems are excellent, though rough on the the skin. For problem details, check out the Stone Country guide, Bouldering in Scotland. It is exposed so is likey to catch a breeze. The landings are all good, a small pad will probably be plenty. Get amoungst it.
