Crag features

The main crag is much steeper and feels much higher than it looks from the road.
A crag with attitude.
Gets all the sun and any breeze going. Dries quickly and needless to say the views across and down the loch are particularly fine.  The lower offs are made from basic hardware chain and should be treated with caution - Some have stainless maillons added for lowering off but others are rapidly deteoriating alloy snapgates.  

Approach notes

About half way down Loch Eilt behind the cottage of Ranochan, named on the OS map as such.
Room for a couple of cars just before the stream/bridge by the old ruins/sheep fanks etc. just before the track that passes the house. Assumes you are driving from the Fort.
Walk up the track past the house, through the pain of a gate in the rear deer fence and left across the hillside. The guy who lives there would like to be asked first. Maybe a new person here now. We have been following the track from the parking through the two gates and across the burn.

Came here after being rained off the Ben and it saved our day. The crag dries incredibly quickly and is far better up close than it looks from the road.
