Sentinel Rock Dirc Mhor © Jamie Skelton
The fine crag of Sentinel Rock gives some superb extremes of up to 95m. A little way further along you'll find Ship Rock and The Shining Wall which offer some of the best rock in the Dirc and are also well worth a visit.
After passing the Dalwhinnie Distillery, drive around 1km along the road and up the hill. At the top of the hill a private road on the left marked "Old Drovers Road" marks the start of the approach. Park on the verge, do not drive down the private road.
On foot, follow the private road. Pass under a house on a good track, then ascend the embankment to join the old drovers road again. Follow this crossing a stream a few times until you reach a deer fence. Handrail this and follow the river and line of eletrical pylons. Eventually the entrance Dirc becomes visible on the left. Approach by contouring round the tree line and following a stream uphill until the crag is visable.
|Great location but the less travelled routes could do with more traffic.
