Crag features

The small island of Madadh Mor (the Big Maddy) is the further North of the two larger maddy islands. Situated at the south of the entrance to Lochmaddy, it and it's sister island, Madadh Gruamach, are impressive landmarks when viewed from the arriving ferry. 

The cliffs on the west of the island feature an impressive assortment of aretes, corners and quality crack climbing.

Approach notes

By boat from Lochmaddy. A verry calm sea is needed to land, since strong tides can create quite a swell round these islands.
