Crag features

Coire Lagan contains some of the best bouldering and most piquant highballs in Scotland, with plenty more to discover. The setting is unparalled, but you'll have to be a proper sad-case boulderer not to be tempted by the greater things around you. Some of the problems are extremely abrasive - bring finger tape! An independent guide by James Sutton entitled 'Gabbrofest' is available online.

Approach notes

From Glen Brittle campsite, walk and walk some more into the corrie.
