'Ultimate Scottish Rock' ticklist

contributed by Andy Moles Mar/11
This public ticklist has been seen 9,522 times

300 of the best routes on the mountains, sea-cliffs and outcrops of Scotland. Trimmed at the upper end of the grade scale to make it a more attainable list - you'll still be doing well to complete it! Restricted to 300 only because it's a nice round figure and I could have gone on adding routes forever.
