Crag features

At first glance, South Lanarkshire's answer to Northumberland. A Sandstone crag 20 mins walk along forest roads from the village of Coalburn. Referred to as Wallace's Cave on some maps. Unfortunately up close the rock is very soft and most potential foot holds like butter. However, despite initial disappointment we still managed to have some fun here. Just don't wear your best dragons...  The rock seems to get firmer higher up so at least the hand holds are only slightly choss. Probably best on a warm summer evening after plenty drying time. Tread carefully.

Approach notes

From Coalburn follow Middlemuir Road South and park at the obvious parking next to the fence. Head East through the fence and follow the forestry road round as it curves right. Take a left at a junction and head downhill to a gate and a sign for Wallace's Cave on the left. Follow this for another 5 mins till you can see the crag ahead of you. 20 mins walk or 5 mins on a bike.
