Crag features

South facing crags that dry very quickly and offer sort steep routes. Too small for a visit from distance, but worth it if you're in the area.

There is also some good bouldering beneath the main crag.

Approach notes

Can be clearly seen from Laggan village, follow a stream for 20 mins until it turns into waterfalls (nice place to swim). The crag is to the right, below a pine tree. Pine tree now fallen over, Feb 2017, so difficult to see but is still there near the top of the rocks. Tracking along the stream edge takes about 45 mins.

Please be considerate as you cross the farm land. Dogs should be kept on a lead and if there are cows/ sheep, especially lambs please stay on the edge of the fields or ideally walk outside of the fences. 

There is now an electric fence to hop if you take the dirt track across the road from the church in Laggan. Take care! Alternatively I think you may be able to follow the stream up to the crag to avoid the cows and fences?
