Crag features

The Twin Headlands lie 1km west of Basalt Columns, Ulva. The impressively steep profile of the East Head is clearly visible from there. The rock of the East Head is distinctively red in colour whilst that of the West Head is much greyer. Both crags are south-facing, clean and non-tidal basalt outcrops. Unlike the Basalt Columns, Ulva, the rock here is generally smooth and most routes lend themselves to crack climbing.

Approach notes

From the west end of Basalt Columns, Ulva, follow the main coastal path till it starts to head inland towards Livingston’s Cave. Cut across a big moss area (often boggy) and continue to follow the coastline, traversing above a line of crags till one can descend at a burn into the back of a bay. Go around the small bay and pass behind a rocky knoll (marked as a ‘fort’ on the map). Cross the remnants of an old wall to reach the end of the East Head crags on the left. Continue a short distance and descend a wide grassy gully into a bay that divides the two headlands and forms a convenient base.
