Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND

Climbs 30 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 900m a.s.l – Faces NE

Crag features

This is the large mass of slabby cliff overlooking the north west end of Creag an Dubh loch. Gets all the sun going and dries very quickly, offers bold slabby climbing on superb granite.


Higher than nearby Creag an Dubh Loch, Eagle rocks provide some good ice routes early season since they require no snow - just a hard frost.

Worth visiting if you've made the trek up to Creag an Dubh Loch and it looks out of condition.

Access notes
Possible restrictions during stalking and shooting seasons.
