Hoping to visit Garbh Bheinn (Ardgour) in September to tackle one or two of the quality rock climbs or scrambles (Great Ridge, Butterknife, Pinnacle Ridge). There's a note in the SMC guide that access can be denied in September due to stag hunting. Does anyone know more or how to find out?
Also interested if anyone can recommend a spot for wild camping from which to tackle these routes - perhaps not too far from the road.
Garbh Bheinn is included under those details, in W Highlands. With the access legislation, not sure why the guide would say access denied, maybe the guide is out of date. But worth giving the estate the courtesy of working around them.
