Perhaps not a world class venue, but Alex's video of the Lennoxtown Boulders is pretty cool. You can read more on his blog, some of which is quoted below, or just watch the video.
"A couple of weeks back I discovered a small sandstone area outside of Glasgow. I've been looking for a while...
...The area is small with room for expansion but has made for a lot of fun over the last few weeks. I set about cleaning with various comrades and opened up a few of the easier lines, most notably a pillar of rock called 'Wow Jen'. This thing is amazing and would hold its own in all the popular destinations I've visited. It's not super hard but packs a punch, has a little height to it and a variety of holds, but most of all it's a feature that is just made to be climbed!
...Another line that I worked out runs through a roof, from its lowest possible holds right to the point of it. It's really involved and has a lot of low persentage moves between bad handholds and awkward toe hooks. I called it Gordon Bombay because I can liken my struggle with this roof to that of the Mighty Ducks."
