A good wee bouldering crag, with undercut starts and the potential for some scary highballs. Quick to dry, though the ground at the base is quite boggy. Clean and very rough on the fingers.
The East Crag is a slab rising out of the next depression about 50m behind the main crag, with the same aspect. It offers some decent warm-up problems.

There are other small crags and boulders to be explored nearby.
Turn off A859 a few miles south of Tarbert at a minor road on the left, signposted to Lacklee, Liceasto, Geocrab etc (NF 134 944). Follow this for a couple of miles to a scatter of houses signed Aird Mhighe, just after passing a junction and recycling facility. Park on a disused and overgrown loop of road (old bridge) about 30m before a postbox. The crag is partially visible up the hill beyond a fence.
