Superb location and good rock on recognised routes. We did a bit of exploring on the other rock and found some very dodgy rock in places.

The location of most of the listed climbs is marked on th OS Map 13 as Aird Mor Mangurstadh 000328. The cliff are complex in detail with several zawns giving access to the bottom of routes like Transatlantic Crossing and the Flannen Slab area. Park at the old Air Force building at 004334
