Glass Slipper VS 4c
Salamander HVS 5a

General Information - The Crag may have restrictions during nesting period each year(early February to late July)if schedule one birds in residence. Depending on weather when surveyors go out to check it is not always possible to verify a nesting attempt easily so if you do notice or disturb raptors on the crag please let myself or MCofS know as soon as possible and nothing has been posted on either this site or the MC of S site. Check MCofS website for more details.

*Remember that any disturbance of protected species can constitute reckless disturbance even if you didn't know it was there and can still therefore be prosecuted so be careful and back off at first signs of any protected bird species being disturbed and inform MC of S to update their website to help inform others. Local raptor study group and the countryside ranger do monitor known crags including climbing crags.

Approach notes

Please park over the bridge on the left hand
side rather than at the end of the track? Just in case a few cars end up blocking access.
Mountain bike from road end to track below main crag. Steep clamber up to Creag Ghlas.

Walk up from the track is some of those tick infested country I've ever encountered.

Spoils of War and Victory Crack given a quick clean Aug 2013. Didn't spend that much time on it, pulled or snipped some tufts of heather.
