South Cove offers a variety of climbs on a number of cliffs, most of which are easily accessed from the large quarry close to the parking.

South Cove is accessed from Cove Village, a small village just south (2 miles) of Aberdeen on the A956. From the village head south, until a sharp right hand bend, turn left here, and head over a railway bridge and then turn right. Drive down this road until parking is reached.
