Very pleasant venue and seemed well bolted. The first left turn on the track is a bit indistinct. Again to reiterate other comments, do a thorough tick check!

Could of warned us it was tidal! :) Much hilarity as we had to rescue our bags off the rock, and boulder back along the base of the crag. We'll pay attention next time. Warm rock in November though - Nice

Can't move for bloody geese.

Good sunny and sheltered crag on conglomerate. The climbing is quite pumpy and enjoyably steep and well worth a visit if you are nearby. A bit of a rarity being a scottish sports crag with maybe 10 easier (4-6a+) routes. From the top you get a good view over the sandflats of Loch Fleet NNR. Lots of geese around.

There are a number of newer bolted routes between Manitou and Train Spotting and also too the right of Above the Line so the list is quite in order at the moment. needs sorting out or a new topo. Great crag for a short day.

Nice crag but beware there are lots of ticks if walking through the fields. Best to walk through the forest.

Just climed the two leftmost routes oat this crag. One left of a small tree ( at the bottom ) and the next to the rightof it. Can't see these on any of the topos here.
