Expanse of sea cliffs offering some excellent

middle to upper grade climbs. Can be grotty in places. Must Do: East Arete, True Finish E2

Approach notes


Bird Ban April-July

Park sensibly near Dowlaw farm. Access from here.

Decsend by abseil or down precarious grassy banks.


Routes under the castle are currently (I last visited Autumn 2004) pretty grotty, and will ideally need cleaning of vegetation and loose rock prior to an ascent. Either that, or expect a bit of an epic, as we recently found out... Great routes around the Souter area though...
