The best climbing is found on Creag Ghlas west buttress which starts about 350 metres altitude.
Must Do Route :
Glass Slipper VS 4c
Salamander HVS 5a
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.
Be aware of sheep ticks which can be abundant.
Currently Eagles are nesting so please avoid until further notice. The estate will be putting signs up at the road end soon. 03/03/20121
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 Mountaineering Scotland know as soon as possible and nothing has been posted on either this site or the Mountaineering Scotland site. Check Mountaineering Scotland 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 Mountaineering Scotland to update their website to help inform others. Local raptor study group do monitor known crags including climbing crags.
