Trad, sport, or bouldering? What sort of grade?

If you are just getting in to leading Aberdour in Fife is probably your best bet. Mostly V-Diff-VS. It's tidal so solid at the bottom but be careful of loose blocks at the top. There is also Traprain Law in East Lothian. Pleasant location but the routes are very, very polished and not that easy to protect quite often as the cracks are small.

In reply to MG: And when the tide's in, Rosyth Quarry is an alternative to the Hawkcraig.

I'd suggest that the OP gets a copy of the SMC Lowland Outcrops guide book. That covers the area in question very well. A little further afield Dunkeld/Craig a Barns in the SMC Highland Outcrops guide book, and the northern Northumberland crags in the NMC's Northumberland Climbing Guide are good for building experience.
