I'd never visited this crag before to climb, so when I got the invite from Struan and Mclellan, I jumped at the chance. Young Newmark got dragged along as well for emotional support. Looked at a couple of routes, started up Drum, the "classic" of the crag, ran the first couple of pitches together, then it started to rain and we abbed off and drove home.

An excellent route if you like climbing 70 degree heather slopes. Better as a winter venue I think, there's one incredible looking winter line, I'll be back when it's cold.

Checking out a possible new route. No runners and quite hard, landing is not great as you fall into a small cave.

We found a pheasant on the way home, Mclellan is well chuffed with his new friend.
