Description 

These are a collection of small to medium sized crags that are dotted around the fringes of the Highlands (mainly the Cairngorms). Some of the cliffs are worth a day or two in their own right while others are worth a visit if some of the other mountainous regions are off limits due to weather.

Getting There 

The A9 north of Perth provides access to many of these cliffs.
