Selkie Wall (NL 933 403):

Walk in access: passing small (15m) steep compact crag (Flaking Wall) to the right at south of peninsular overlooking a large zawn (SW facing)20m(south side)

From Flaking Wall work north round the massive abutting block on large boulders (obvious arete). Once round the corner scramble up an upwardly slanting ramp to a slightly rising (left to right)ledge about 15m above the sea, about 25m long, backed by a Selkie Wall decreasing from about 20m at the south end to 10m at the north. The easy descent route is down a gentle diagonal fault from north to south. The situation is spectacular with crashing waves right

below, and no signs of bird nesting, although the occasional Fulmar flies past.

Access notes
No Climbing between May and July.
