Topic - Scottish Sport Climbing - I'm worried

Robert Durran - on 22 Jun 2013
I got my beautiful, glossy and in many ways inspiring new Scottish Sports Climbs guide in the post yesterday but I am a bit worried. There seem to be rather a lot of little crags in it, often in out of the way places, which have been bolted up despite apparently not having anything about them which suggests they wouldn't make perfectly good little trad crags. Has this bolting slipped under radar without proper debate except perhaps by a small number of locals keen to have a "training venue"? Is it the result of Scotland not having the steep limestone which England has and which generally provides a delineation for bolting? Indeed, I recently heard a "local" suggest that a perfectly good trad crag I had just visited would have been bolted had it been "discovered" today. Should I be worried?
