Crag features

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.

Approach notes

Access requires a private boat. The island has been uninhabited since 1912 and is now owned by the National Trust. There is a designated camping area next to the ruins and above the bay on the east side of the island. Access to some sectors (Great Arch, Pink and Grey Walls) requires 100m abseil ropes.

Some EE phone reception these days.
