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.

Access notes
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

turn left onto a path and after 2mins you will find the boulder.
