Crag features

Low grade bouldering on an esoteric south facing basalt crag. The rock is mostly bullet hard. There is also a stand alone boulder in the field in front of the crag with some very easy problems. 

Can be somewhat overgrown and some gardening equipment proves useful. Winter likely the best time of year to visit as the greenery is much reduced.

Requires traffic to form access paths but the rock is clean.

Approach notes

From Johnstone, take Auchenlodment Road. Follow this out of the back of the town. Near the top of the hill, the crag can be viewed on the RHS of the road if the greenery is low; otherwise look out for the parking beside a FC Windyhill sign. 

From the parking area, cross the road, turn right then follow a path in on the left which leads to the top of the crag in 2 mins.

crag given a good bit of gardening today, cleared brambles and whims, accessible from the path over the top (drop in end furthest away from road)
