What am I doing on all this schist? © Fraser

Crag features

Two distinct levels, lower outcrop (smaller and shorter) and the upper outcrop (longer and taller).

Some loose rock, so make sure you take helmets and stay vigilant.

Approach notes

From Pitlochry, north of Perth on the A9, take the A924 going east towards Kirkmichael. Approximately 8 miles from Pitlochry, the SEER Centre is the large pink house on the left hand side of the road. The car park (grid ref NO038638) is clearly signposted.


The crag can be accessed by the gate at the top of the car park, and a 10 minute walk over the fields to the base of the crags (head towards the phone mast)

Restricted Access

BIRD NESTING RESTICTIONS - Falcons often nest on these crags -

They are present as of spring 2017 on the Upper Tier. Please avoid this are until later in the year.

nests are empty now. falcons still circling though... These routes are like a Chinese hit list any chance of getting them in order looks like someone has been guessing where the routes are.

Could someone local put a sign on the gate about the falcons? We went up to the upper crag without knowing (didn't have internet and were just passing so went up for a wee climb) we woud have made a sign but didn't have anything suitable with us.

Was there on the 8th May and there were nesting falcons on the upper crag. Please avoid climbing there. The lower crag is fine.

No more nesting falcons, though there is a nest with a couple dead seagulls and two ringed skeletons that look like falcons...
Shed - 11/Oct/14
Please avoid upper crag for the time being as there are falcons with chicks.
