A great position on pitch 2 of Gudgeon © Chris wilson

Crag features

A finely situated and very accessible vertical 70m high crag overlooking Tollie Bay at the north-west tip of the beautiful Loch Maree. The crag is very sheltered with lots of trees and luxuriant vegetation around the base and therefore can be very midgy later in the summer. Unfortunately, the first pitch to many of the routes resembles 'The Hanging Gardens of Babylon,' but are worth battling with to reach the cleaner upper section. Receives sun until midday in summer.

Approach notes

Turn off south down the tarmaced single track road 0.6 miles/1km south of Poolewe (signposted Tollie Farm/No through road) and follow the track for 0.9 miles/1.5km to a small parking spot on the right at its end.

The Bug 120' E2 5b ***...fantastic. The other routes look good too.
