Approach notes

From the front of Kinloch Caste take a right and follow the road until it bends left. Shortly after the bend a small trails breaks right (signposted Dibidil 8.5km) through the trees. Follow this up the hill, it should then flatten out and after crossing two streams you will be in a boulder field where the Tunnel Boulder can be found. Walking downhill the Rites and Turtle Boulders can be found. Walking directly up valley towards the base of Hallival to Coire Nan Grund, the main jumble of the largest boulders can be found (Highballa and Bumpy).

Hi there, I visited these boulders in April 1999 and had a lot of fun... have you got a topo of these problems so I can add to the next Scottish Bouldering guide? email stonecountrypress@btinternet.com
