Crag features

A few miles north of Applecross village, the road drops down to a lovely beach aptly named 'Sand'. At the parking spot by the road down to the MOD station, there is a remarkable roof feature. Though a plinth of rock underneath it makes it scary for bouldering through the roof itself, there are some perma-dry traverses on the back wall and a few good straight up problems. There is further bouldering ("Brae Boulders") under the scrappy escarpement above main road about 900 m south of the MOD/Sand Bay turning.

Approach notes

For the Roof and Orange Wall area, park at the Sand Bay car park just off the road down to the MOD station, the roof is 50 m from the car park. For the Brae Boulders it is better to use the carpark on the west side of the main road just over a kilometre south of the MOD turning: the main Brae boulders lie a couple of hundred meters to the north.
