Mike Robertson's award winning Deep Water guide, covering DWS on the English South Coast, Pembroke, Scotland and throughout the world.

The rockandrun guide has no new routes since 2012 and doesn't include many routes done before then. Smelly Crack is in the wrong place on the topo and Sloch Dubh Wall is in the wrong place on the map. Use the new SMC guide!

Worth downloading this before you go, as there's some quality routes in here. Highly recommend Oatcake Thin. http://info.rockrun.com/erraid-update-2012.html

Good camping above the beach, may be worth carrying drinking water as the burn looks a bit polluted.

rumour has it to watch out for the hippies who inhabit this tidal getaway.
