Crag features

This complex area of crags offers some of the finest roadside cragging in Scotland, with plenty of accessible slabs throughout the grades and some good steep walls and cracks.

The star rating of some post-2000 additions in the current guidebook should be treated with suspicion, as some are squeezed onto very narrow pieces of rock between existing routes, and would be regarded by many as too contrived or eliminate to be recorded as independent routes.

Approach notes

Locating the crags above the lower tier can be tricky, particularly in summer, though recent work to clear some of the birch trees has helped. Like any Highland crag, a breeze is crucial in summer.

No Access Issues

Try not to park in passing places.

Climbed there on 22/04/15 and two Barn Owls flew out of a crevice in the rock just below the tree belay on pitch two. Possibly nesting, please be aware. Cheers

If the leaves are out (i.e summer) you'd better be ready to bushwhack about a bit to find your crag. A good venue but maybe not quite 'roadside' due to crashing about in hillside woodlands.

Great crag with excellent routes in most grade. However, Pine Wall is over graded in quality and difficulty. Tip: Put midge repelent on your ankles if your not wearing socks.
