End of a good winters day. Robbie Miller rappelling down Limestone Blues Cliff Meikle Ross, Galloway, Scotland © Matt crawford

Crag features

8 cliff areas within a 800metre stretch of coastline give adventurous climbing mostly in the middle grades. Variable rock quality.

Approach notes

Avoid Limehouse Blues Cliff between May to August due to nesting birds, other cliffs relatively bird-free.

Guidebooks

A fantastic suntrap for end of year climbing In a fantastic position. Rock quality in Little Zawn was actually very good. Walk in through the Cattle - might not want to wear your new trainers!

Climbed there many years ago one chilly Easter Sunday, in shirtsleeves. It can be a suntrap during the cooler months. Did Limehouse Blues, Galloway Corner, Crack & Corner and Salty Dog - all of which were worthwhile.

If you have to climb one route on Meikle Ross, Mellow Yellow, VS 4c is the one........Fantastic!
