The short story of a new crag


Ness of Sound

A collection of large, impressive sandstone boulders and walls on a steep east facing scree slope. Many of the problems are highballs and pads and spotters are required. The rock is generally good but can be a little sandy.


In Lerwick, drive past Tesco supermarket for about 200m, then turn off left down the costal road. Follow this all the way, going back up the hill and past a farm. Continue down the rough track until it ends. Park here ensuring that no access is blocked. From here walk south through the gates on a rough track and over the hill. The boulders are on the large scree slope that faces east.


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.
