Crag features

These spectacular sandstone cliffs just south of the Old Man of Hoy are breached by some amazingly steep and extreme 1-4 pitch routes.

Rock is generally excellent and dry, but can take a few days to dry out after heavy weather.

Must Dos :

Muklehead Wall E5

Two Little Boys E6

Rosamunds Birthday E4
