Brin Rock

Invernesshire, SCOTLAND

Climbs 67 – Rocktype Gneiss – Altitude 260m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
These four buttresses lie on the south side of Creag Dhubh above the B851. Many boulders lie scattered below the crags and offer all styles and grades of problems. Details of the traditional climbs on Brin Rock can be found in the SMC Highland Outcrops Guide and a guide to the bouldering can be found at

Airy and exposed climbing on very sound rock! A good head is required as protection is fairly spaced but this makes the climbing all the better! Access is hard work up a steep densely vegetated slope but well worth the effort!!

Access notes
Please ask permission from the gamekeeper by knocking on the door at his house GR 656287 before parking. He does not mind people parking but would appreciate people asking first.

Good trad if you can hack the boulder and heather bash, and a great bouldering circuit that deserves more attention and a proper write-up on here (where is Brin Done Before?? :0). Worth noting that despite the comments on the classic Spank The Ramp, there is no point ruining it by somehow ignoring the good hold directly in the middle of the problem - it is a proper line not some shitty eliminate....this is not bloody Boltsheugh!!
