I went to Craigmaddie this year for the first time and enjoyed the climbing.

Looks like a nice spot from the photo in the article. Is it to the south of Glasgow?

You need to watch the tides if you're ever tempted to visit Clashfaquhar - a friend was telling me he had to wade out of there last weekend, which he described as bracing.

Yes, it is north of Glasgow, not that far from my home. It was last year, 2007, not this year I went to it.

In reply to Norrie Muir: I live pretty near that area too. Where about are the boulders exactly. Would be good to go somewhere different without the drive.
