Ben Ledi boulders

Climbs 75 – Rocktype Schist – Altitude 440m a.s.l – Faces ?

Crag features
Located past the tree line in Stank Glen on the north side of Ben Ledi is a long boulder field strewn down the hillside.

The main boulders are just beyond a fence. The massive boulder with a great split in it is Cottage Boulders. The squarish boulder on its own to the right at roughly the same height is Corpse boulder.

A number of easy winter routes are possible on the east face.

Access notes
For the boulders, go along the single track road towards the holiday chalets, then follow a forestry track uphill a short distance before taking a footpath on the right more directly uphill. This crosses the forestry track again once above the tree line. Follow the path up the glen, then cut up left towards the boulders when you reach a white marker post beside a boulder. The main boulders are a short distance up sometimes-boggy ground, just past a fence. Approx 40min uphill from the chalet access road.

Bouldering in Scotland (2008), Stone Country (2005),
Out of print: Lowland Outcrops (1994)
