Coire Lagan

Climbs 44 – Rocktype Gabbro – Altitude 50m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
Glen Brittle & Coire Lagan easily contains some of the best, if not abrasive, bouldering in the Western isles. Bring finger tape.

A new independent guide book by James Sutton exclusively dealing with & bringing up-to-date, all the bouldering in Coire Lagan, is due for release this spring/summer. More details when available. [April 06]

Access notes
From the campsite take the main coire path behind the toilets. The majority of boulders are spread along this. There are also boulders best approached by the Coire a Ghrunnda path to the right & a hard-core area under development at 1800 ft. The bouldering here is very serious & up to 40-50ft high with crevassed landings on small 10ft boulders!
