Creag an Amalaidh (Princess Cairn)

Sutherland, SCOTLAND

Climbs 17 – Rocktype Conglomerate – Altitude 193m a.s.l – Faces SE

Crag features
A good newly developed crag with nice routes ranging form 4 to 6c+, including a multi pitch sport route (2 pitch) and fine views over Loch Fleet. The rock is a good and solid conglomerate featuring slabs and some fierce overlapps. Some routes have some lichen but should become cleaner over time. The crag is all bolted with stainless steel bolts and hangers.

About 25m from the parking area by the cattle grid is a boulder with a few routes, if you can find it!

Access notes
Park by the cattle grid on the Lochbuie road (juntcion just south of the Mound Causeway) just off the A9. Hike SW up the forested ridge, the crag will appear on the right, 20min. Do not get confused with the chossy overgrown crags just visible from the cattle grid.

Dirty Jenny is now clean! Lots of Bracken during the dummer on the walk in but there is a faint path.
