Crag features

A domed hillside of immaculate gneiss crags, which offer some of the best low-level cragging in the Northwest Highlands.

In spite of the endless 'dire' puns in route names, locals pronounce the place "DEE-a-beg".

55m abseil from new pegs/rope slings/maillon at top of pitch 2 of Foil; this is about 10m right of the previous abseil anchor from the perched block at the top of The Black Streak. There is currently also an abseil anchor on the large grass ledge at the top of first pitch - 25m abseil from here.

As previous comments; restaurant in Diabaig is fantastic and 60m ropes get you down from the tat at the top. Bolts at 1/3 height ledge in place as of April 2019...not entirely sure why.

There's now a fantastic restaurant in the village, well positioned for a post climb meal and beer - but it's advisable to book if you want a table.

Watch out for ticks of the unwelcome type. The path is crawling with them.

60m ropes will get you down in one go from the top of Black Streak on the Main Cliff

It's hard to imagine a more perfect crag. Absolutely stunning!

Just awesome. The Pillar, Northumberland Wall, Black Streak and Route 2 made for possibly the best day's cragging I've ever done.
