Carn Liath Isle of Skye, SCOTLAND
Climbs 50 – Rocktype Dolerite – Altitude 450m a.s.l – Faces NE
As well as the main crag, this is perhaps the most dense and concentrated area of boulders in Scotland.
From Portree, take the main Staffin road toward The Storr. On the gravel bend at the dip below Carn Liath itself, beyond Rigg. Follow the bogland & crevassed burn along the left edge of the managed forestry towards the obvious striking nose of Carn Liath. The whole area from the road into the chasm of Carn Liath itself is open ground for livestock. Keep an eye on your hounds if taking them along.

Great new crag, surprising what can be achieved courtesey of the letter "I". Correct (current) name is CARN LIATH, see page 291 in Skye and the Hebrides, Volume 1.
A fantastic crag which feels much more remote than its 1.7km from the nearest road.|
