This single glacial erratic lies in a field on the north edge of the woods of Creag na Gaoith, west of Crieff. A subsidiary hill is clearly identified from miles around by the vertical monument of Sir David Baird, thrusting from its summit.
The boulder is rounded schist, not particularly high, but offers short vicious problems on small holds and a desperate traverse.
A brush to clean the moss and a tarpaulin to keep your mat poo free are recommended.
It lies in the field, just off the track. Access it as for the monument path, but contour off left 0.1 miles up the path. Take left path to Crieff and carry on for 0.6 miles.
The Boulder can be accessed through the gate. The south face (facing the track) is very low and an easy step gains the top.
