Ranochan Wall

Highland, SCOTLAND

Climbs 22 – Rocktype Gneiss – Altitude ? – Faces SW

Crag features
The main crag is much steeper and feels much higher than it looks from the road.

A crag with attitude.

Gets all the sun and any breeze going. Dries quickly and needless to say the views across and down the loch are particularly fine

Access notes
About half way down Loch Eilt behind the cottage of Ranochan, named on the OS map as such.

Room for a couple of cars just before the stream/bridge by the old ruins/sheep fanks etc. just before the track that passes the house. Assumes you are driving from the Fort.

Walk up the track past the house, through the pain of a gate in the rear deer fence and left across the hillside. The guy who lives there would like to be asked first. Maybe a new person here now. We have been following the track from the parking through the two gates and across the burn.
