Creag Ghlas Rock Climbing
A nice mountain cliff that sits up high on Sgurr A'Mhuilinn above Gleinn Meinich. The rock faces SW so it gets good sun most of the day.
Double ropes are helpful but not required. Bring a good selection of cams and nuts. A double set of cams to 2" would be helpful for some routes such as Hall of Mirrors, Spoils of War, Victory Crack, etc.
Take the single-track road out from Marybank through the Strathconon to the tiny village of Milton. Continue about 2 miles and look for an obvious parking area on the right at the start of the forestry road (locked gate) opposite of a couple houses.
It's about a 3 mile hike up the Gleinn Meinich to the base of the hill. Probably best to cycle to the base if possible.
Head directly up the hill, bushwacking your way up through the heather and bracken to the base of the area you want. As you get closer, more well-used paths appear.
Allow 2-2.5 hours if hiking in, less if cycling.
