This is a long shot, but I was climbing at Bennybeg last weekend and I may have left my belay device lying. It's silver, black diamond I think. Anyone seen it?

Anyone have an idea what the bolts/chains/anchors situation is now? Was thinking of going here this weekend.

Update on 23rd of July - looks like bolts and chains/lower off rings are in place for the right side (section 2 / harder section). Few bolts and maillons are a little bit rusty. We found one hanger (on Beg'tastic) quite loose - that's sorted for now.

Was there today - the 8th of June - and quite a few bolts are still chopped and chains missing. Some bolt nuts look a bit rusty. How about placing a 'donation box' near the cafe so we climbers can out a few pounds in for a bolt fund ?

Lost a Swiss army knife mid July, if anybody has found it please get in touch.

Watch out for dog poopy.

Some good climbing to be had just don't expect much to hold onto. I suppose it is good practice to get your footwork right!!

Just took a walk along to Bennybeg (I live on the other side of the pond so it's pretty convenient!) and the hangers at the start of "Bill and Benny the Flower Pot Men" and "Driven Round the Benny'd" have been snaffled by some fiend.

Bit dull, nice location, good for beginners and technique (footwork practice) and especially good for light session when hungover or injured.

Fairly unique climbing for Scotland. Low grade bolted roadside crag. Good for beginners and those with king size hangovers!

quite possibly the most boring location for a crag, but the routes are ok. Try the traverse (left to right).
