Along with its neighbouring islands, this is one of the best rock climbing destinations in Britain, as well as one of the most remote. Big, steep cliffs of beautiful gneiss in a stunning location, with some convenient smaller crags as well. World class.
The island can be accessed privately by boat. The island has been uninhabited since 1912 and is now owned by the National Trust. There is a good camping area next to the National Trust building above the bay on the east side of the island. Access to some sectors (Guarsay Mòr, Dun Mingulay) requires 100m abseil ropes. Some of the bigger unclimbed cliffs would require even longer ropes.
