This crag is clearly seen when travelling south on the A9, across the mound on the south side of Loch Fleet. The rock is good quality conglomerate and gives good pocket climbing compared to the conglomerate further south. Given the nature of the rock, holds do break and attention to head protection and mindful belaying positions are necessary. There are currently no access issues.
The routes are described left to right.
All routes were bolted by Andrew and Sue Wilby except 23 and 24 by David Douglas and 10 by Simon Nadin.
First ascents by Andrew Wilby, Dave Douglas, Simon Nadin, Pete Clarkson, Murdo Jamieson and Mhairi Stewart.
There may be a bird of prey nesting on the crag early springtime. Last year it nested elsewhere. If it is spotted please contact Mountaineering Scotland access officer and let us know so that we can assess the nesting situation. Thanks
As for Princess Cairn. After the cattle grid park in the 2nd passing place (NH 7659 9795). There is space for 2 cars and it will still function as a passing place. Please park further along if more than 2 cars.
Time 5 – 10 mins
Cross the small wooden plank from the passing place and follow a vague path through the trees and then through bracken. Walk left when the crag is reached to an area of clean rock which leads up to the ledge below the crag. There is a rope in place but it is an easy scramble. The approach is short but can be ‘damp’ in places. Boots or wellies are advisable.
