Crag features

The Brander is the obvious huge green fin running out into the

sea, south of Fastcastle Head.

Good climbing in a breath-taking coastal setting.

Approach notes

Tidal

Bird ban 1st April - 21st August

Beware of the goat that lives on the Brander -

it eats climbers sandwiches and rucksacks - not to mention abseil ropes!
