The Tiger

Climbs 2 – Rocktype Gneiss – Altitude ? – Faces N

Crag features
Situated in the atmospheric Bay of Swordly where the ancient history of Borve Castle is intertwined with the natural history of age old rock, this incredible sweep of black and orange cliff resembles the coat on a tiger's back and climbing on it is probably just as euphoric. The platform below the cliff is non tidal in all but rough seas. There is an abseil station situated on the hill above the crag and taking a separate abseil rope is highly recommended.

"refreshes the parts that honey-pots like Sheigra don't reach"

Access notes
Take the road out to Farr Point and half way along turn up right past a stables and park sensibly. If you have a 4wd or a robust attitude to your car then continue up the track from the stables and park in a lay-by beside the last gate. 20 metres beyond the gate and the whole of The Bay of Swordly will be presented to you, The Tiger is opposite the sea arch.
