/ Bow Fiddle Rock, Portknockie.
Does anyone know anything about Bow Fiddle Rock at Portknockie? Are there climbs up any of it? I saw a picture in a wild swimming book and have searched on UKC and Google but found no information about climbing on it.
Thanks for any help.
No climbs listed in a guidebook. It looks like the slabby side would be quite easy, and the underside near impossible. It's also quite birdy, as is that whole stretch of coast.
It featured last night on BBC 2 Scotland's Adventure show, in the sea canoe segment. Might be available on I player? Looks quite slabby, and covered in bird droppings on the sea facing side, not too promising.
May well be worth exploring, I've thought about having a clamber about on it but never have. Kayaked through it a few times, but for climbing it might be best in Spring before the birds have nested, and after the winter storms have cleaned the old nests away...
