An impressive secluded shingle beach guarded to the north by an impressive seastack. Some small sea washed red granite boulders lay at the base of the gully and three larger boulders lie at the north end of the beach. There are numerous walls of varying angles and the odd cave to explore. Problems tend to be steep and difficulty is increased by the pebble polished rock.


Take the road going north along Ronas Voe all the way to a turning area just before the house at the end. Park here and walk north for about 15 mins over the high point and continue until you get to a steep gully that is fenced off. Climb the fence and descend the gully with care. [Note: It's recommended that a rope be be tied off at the top to help with the descent, the slope is extremely steep and loose especially when carrying mats.] The boulders are on the beach, below the large, obvious and impressive stack.


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.
