Crag features

A village crag overlooking the crofting settlement of Mellon Charles. Appears slightly broken at first but there are a number of enjoyable routes on good rock. A lovely evening venue, or a chance to escape from the rain soaked hills.

Approach notes

Directions

After entering Mellon Charles and heading up the hill, the road makes a series of right angled turns with roads/tracks leading off. At the second left turn, just before Murdo Macrae's yard, a small road heads straight on and up the hill towards the crag. The smokehouse mentioned in the SMC guide has moved.

Head directly to the crag from where the small road bends right, keeping to the left of the field initially before heading through a gap in the wall and up to a gate. Open moorland then leads to the crag.
