As the boulder is quite short most problems have sitting starts. The
rock is pretty sound. Although short the boulder is worth a visit if you
are passing. The prow is a must do if you are operating at the grade.

The Balgy Boulder is a prominent sandstone erratic on the South side
of Upper Loch Torridon. It is 7km (4.5miles) west of Annat heading
towards Sheildaig on the A896. The boulder can be clearly seen on
the East side of the road. Park at a lay-by on the right side (at
837542). Opposite the lay-by head up a vague stream line for 30sec
turn left onto a path and after 2mins you will find the boulder.
