Fingery crux on The Machair © Hamfunk

Crag features

The crag is a vertical wall perfect for bouldering and offers mostly good landings. Several obvious easy lines and great potential for hard eliminates on lovely tiny crimps.

Approach notes

It doesn't get much more roadside than this! Take the turning at NF705044 down to the group of houses and drive straight onto the beach. Park where you like, making sure not to block access or annoy anyone. The crag is obvious from the road to and from barra airport.

All climbs apart from the Traverse..... Also, The Machair is actually a sit start, but the video shows starting from a stand.
