FRI NIGHT VID: Am Buachaille Sea Stack

Am Buachaille aka The Shepherd is one of the "Big 3" sea stacks located in the Far North West of Scotland along with the Old Men of Stoer and Hoy. Thanks to a 4 mile walk in, a tricksome descent and approach culminating in a "character building" swim across a 15 metre channel of water exposed only at low tide, this Old Man is considered to be the most remote and serious of them all. No walking to the base or setting up a tyrolean traverse on this Torridonian sandstone 50 metre high behemoth...

UKC user David Linnett has sent in another of his classic 'grand day out' films. Enjoy!

"It was a memorable day spent with Henry Castle and Paul Donnithorne clambering up the excellent 3* Landward Face route in perfect weather on possibly one of the best adventure routes in the UK, before collapsing on the beautiful Sandwood Bay beach. The entertainment was duly recorded and features the beautiful walk-in, approach and swim, sandstone sea stack shenanigans, fearsome fulmars, eye-popping exposure plus some aerial drone footage. This is the story of our day!"
