Crag features

This classically proportioned pinnacle is Islay’s best-known sea-stack and gets its name from the prominent quartz band on its seaward side, reminiscent of a soldier’s shoulder belt. 

Approach notes

The stack lies on the coast west of the abandoned settlement of Grasdale, approached from Kintra campsite at the south end of Laggan Bay. It was reached by a 100m swim.
