Burnside Bouldering Wall

Climbs 7 – Rocktype Schist – Altitude 306m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
A pleasant, clean little bouldering wall in the woods near Aviemore. Notoriously hard to find, less so in winter when the birches are leafless. In summer it is an overgrown hell of ticks and midges, so not recommended. The slab right of the wall offers short easy solos.

Approach notes
A 1:25000 map is useful - note that the marker on the satellite map above is exact. Drive up through the new housing development at High Burnside to park at a gate on the edge of the plantation. Follow a landrover track on the left. About 200m beyond where a stream crosses the path, strike off left until you come to a deer fence. The wall is about 100m beyond this, forming the western side of a small ridge. 10-15 minutes' walk.
