The bouldering at Dumbarton is some of the best in the United Kingdom. There are a number of large boulder scattered below the North West Face.

The problems range across all aspects of the difficulty spectrum, from the very easiest to the very hardest. They also range from the very short to the distinclty high ball problem.

No matter the time of year, if it isn't raining you'll be sure to find a like soul pondering the one of the problems.

Getting There 

From the parking lot, walk north west, the first cliffs on the left form the North Face, continue on around and as you see large boulders directly in front of you. The first boulder you see is Eagle Rock.
