Highland Outcrops South *** ticklist

contributed by Andy Moles Aug/11

The best outcrop trad and sport climbs in the great wedge of the Highlands between the Great Glen and Highland Boundary Fault, with some of the best boulder problems thrown in too.

Because recent Scottish guidebooks have gone a bit star-crazy, this may help to distinguish routes that are actually worth travelling for from routes that are 'local' three-star. Less often climbed routes for which not much feedback exists have been given the benefit of the doubt!
