Approach notes

Burn ‘O Vat crag is a 20 mins walk from the Vat visitor centre car park.  The best approach to follow is Take the path parallel to the road past the visitor centre, on route you should pass 2 bridges and go through the Vat then you should keep walking until you hit “Entry Slab” on your right, all climbing is up stream from here.

Walk in is easy enough just easier with good footwear as there are sections of path are bouldery.

A really nice spot , routes could use more traffic. Very scenic walk in and out.
