I'm really a trad climber that does a bit of sport and winter climbing. I enjoy a good day's cragging but the best climbing days involve a bit of adventure on mutli-pitch routes either in the mountains or on the sea cliffs. Although the NE of Scotland has some great places to climb I like to get away on trips to other climbing venues as much as I can.

Best Climbing Experience
Its impossible to name just one! The most memorable days generally involve a classic route with good company in the right conditions. Here are some that come to mind:

The Old Man of Hoy an awesome route on a beautiful island.
Etive Slabs - scary friction climbing!
Caringorms - big days in the mountains climbing on cliffs like the Shelterstone or Creag an Dubh Loch as well as easier classics like Eagle Ridge and Squareface.
Gogarth British sea cliff climbing at its best.
Scottish West Coast climbing/camping trips at places like Reiff or Neist Point.
Llanberis Pass classics on brilliant rock.
