Description [Edit]

Scotland provides the most remote climbing in the UK. There are a number of good small crags and sea cliffs, but you will be rewarded if you take the time to venture into some of the more remote climbing areas in the Highlands.

The individual areas are broken up into the same basic areas that the Scottish Mountaineering Councils (SMC) guide book series.

Getting There [Edit]

Fly to Edinburgh or Glasgow, or drive up the A1, or M6 from England.

Hello to anybody who may read this,
I'm wondering if anybody out there may be willing to help a visiting American (me) with getting out and climbing in the near future. I'll be on a family holiday in Inverness for the month of May, and would be pretty disappointed in myself if I didn't manage to sample some of the nearby stone. If anyone has interest in showing me around anywhere, or has any input on where I may be able to borrow or rent a crash pad or sport climbing gear, I'd be really appreciative of it.
Cheers,
