/ Photos wanted for Inner Hebrides guidebook
We have started collecting action photos for the book, and if anyone has any decent photos that they would like to see in print then have a look at http://www.smc.org.uk/photos for details of where and how to send in your pics.
Some good shots here, you have probably seen them already.
Colin, I was on Mull in October and visited Market Bay (nr. Bunessan), among other places. A bit of bog-trotting required to reach, but there are some wonderful-looking (if not very high) pink granite outcrops at the beach. Are there any recorded routes there?
(Sorry to Grahame for the hijack.)
I'm not aware of any climbing there. Kintra/Camus has been difficult to put together.
The approaches are not easy to describe and the earlier routes were not written up. Danny Brooks wrote up his routes in the 80's but they are in a book somewhere in Scotland, and he lives in Italy.
Right, thanks - I was curious.
i had thought the same on a visit there a few years ago - lovely pink granite in a fab setting but maybe just a wee bit too short to be more than scrambles ? The outcrops run all the way down to kintra where they grow to about 8 metres hieght ? (and give more good scrambling)
Aye they're possibly a wee bit on the short side!
That one's on our list for next time!
Kintra can be a bit bigger than 8m.
This bit is 30m high.
A few photos here, the first two are 25m high.
