Crag features

Lots of interesting lines following well protected cracks. Most routes 1 pitch.
Best visited in the afternoon to get the sun.
Must Do Trad : Dracula E3

Near here is also Pinnacle Crag (listed separately in the Database) on the opposite side of the road to the main crag which offers generally easier routes on very clean rock. Normally dries quickly from the wind.

Also see the two editions of Scottish Bouldering. Vimeo is the best source for videos of lines! 

Must do Boulders: The Untrained Ear f7A+ and Eriophorum angustifolium f6B, The Settler f7C

 

 

 

There are some well worth doing climbs here. It's true that midgies can be a problem in the wrong conditions but pick the right afternoon or sunny evening and a great time can be had on the starred routes. The other negative comments do not do it justice!
