Noss Head

Climbs 32 – Rocktype Slate – Altitude ? – Faces E

Crag features
The headland at the south side of Sinclair Bay, 3km North of Wick Town.

The rock is apparently very solid & clean, varying between a hard black slate and sandstone. Belay points are readily available at the top and though tidal, most climbs have a dry ledge at the bottom.

Parking is available in the large car park a few hundred metres before the lighthouse. From the car park, head south, following the large wall to the coast.

Access to sea-level is via one of two easy scrambles; one is on the North Side of the South Inlet, and the other is a few metres further to the North.

Access notes
No access issues have been noted.
