Scapa Beach Quarry

Orkney Islands, SCOTLAND

Climbs 1 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 11m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
An old sea quarry to the West of Scapa beach. Looks to be undeveloped as a climbing venue, part in due to birds nesting and crumbly nature of the rock.

Access notes
Follow Scapa Beach West to a cliff-top walk. Walk along this passing Scapa Distillery on the right and crossing a small footbridge above running water. The quarry top only has a few hidden blocks and stakes from which to abseil from or alternatively walk a little further before scrambling down to the left and in to the quarry floor.
