Hugh Niven

From Clova Farm in East Angus, Hugh Niven has been supplying Albert Bartlett with potatoes for over 25 years.

As well as farming, he runs a small family hotel in Glen Clova, which is one of the Five Glens of Angus. Having these businesses has allowed Hugh to get involved with many different environmental schemes and provided the opportunity to create ponds, encourage silver birch tree regeneration and use un-harvested crops to increase the local population of small birds.

Additionally, the Glen Clova Hotel is situated right next to the South Esk River, which is part of the European Union’s LIFE Programme. This project aims to conserve the population of Atlantic salmon and other forms of sea life. Hugh’s hotel also hosts the annual Forfar Road Runners Half Marathon, which Albert Bartlett sponsors every year!
