Crag features

The best boulder on Rannoch Moor sitting on its own next to a tree about 5 minutes walk from the prominent corner in the road across the boggy ground.


Recently (since the Stone Country 2008 was published) a large shelf of rock has come off changing the nature of Galtee Merci Traverse, The Jump and Galtee Merci. (These climbs didnt feature in Boulder Scotland 3rd Edition.)

Approach notes

Park a couple of hundred metres down the road (towards Glen Etive) from the prominent corner at the highest point of the Rannoch Moor road in a tarmac layby. Walk back down the road until you turn the corner and then take vague old forestry commision track used for clearing the trees. The boulder can be seen in the distance next to a birch tree and looks insignificant until stood quite close to it.

Boulder at 56.6206000, -4.7614300
