Description 

This is a small cliff face, 10-15 meters in height with all sport routes, A 30 meter rope and 10 quickdraws are all you will need. Its appeal is in the short approach and abundance of other activities, making this an ideal place for families. Not the place to go if you are not interested in crowds, newbies, or folks just enjoying being outside. faces south, so when the sun is out (It happens!) the crag is quite nice.

Park in the obvious carpark just past the cafe on the right; through the gate. The crag is a whole 2 minutes from there. Traffic can move quickly, so be cautious merging back onto the main road.

Getting There 

Benny Beg is located to the west of the town of Crieff. Follow the M9 North from Stirling, turning off for Braco. Signs can be followed into Crieff to the Ceramic Experience and eventually the Benny Beg Nursery where the crag is located. This can also be accessed from Edinburgh by going up the M90, exiting at junction 4 and following signs to Crieff. About an hour to an hour and a half from the city.
