The short story of a new crag


Faither stack

To see this map cookies and javascript must be enabled. If you are still having trouble after having checked both of these please contact us using the link at the top of the page


This fine 35m stack is hidden away from view by the surrounding cliffs. Access to the stack is gained by a 50m free hanging abseil from the cliff-top north-west of the stack to a wave washed platform, followed by a dash to the stack across a channel between waves up to mid tide. A 100m abseil rope is required as anchor points are spaced out.


The Faither (far point) is the most northerly point of land to the west of Ronas Voe.

Approach: From the parking spot for Warie Gill (HU 2460 8245) walk north to the headland.


Sorry but you need to be logged in to the site to see routes and problems at crags. Of course it costs nothing to register and you’ll be able to see all! Thanks.
