An OK wee crag on summer's evening for bouldering, top roping or leading. Willie's Route (S) is good but a tad bold at the top for those new to leading. Punk Rock (HVS 5a) is a good technical route taking a steep pillar past an in- situ engineering nut. Fornication (VS) has a fair bit of loose rock so beware. Strawberry Crack is good but short.

A topo for the crag is available at www.lomondmc.com/home/neilston-quarry/
Warning - Loose rock at top of Punk Rock - large pieces fell 01/06/20
Take the M8 heading to Kilmarnock, come off at J22 and follow the road to Barrhead and then into Neilston. Follow the back road out of Neilston heading away from Glasgow; you will see the pad on your left hand side. Avoid parking in the entrance road to the industrial unit as they need the access to be clear.
