Sutherland, SCOTLAND

Climbs 17 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 764m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
The best of the climbing potential is to be found on the summit tors of Sgor a' Bhatain, An Caisteal, and Sgor Chaonasaid, and also on the western cliffs of Sgor a' Chleirich. Also worth noting is the massive boulder field by the side of Loch Fhionnaich which would seem to have endless interest and potential for the boulderer. The rock type is syenite, this is a form of granite which has no quartz present.

Access notes
Access from Ribigill farm NC 584 547(park at the cattle grid just before entering the farm road its self), then follow land rover track and rough path, south, to the derelict croft of Cunside ...
