    I’ve just paddled this stretch of coast for the first time in many years. Lots of interesting rock. Has anyone taken a look in this area? I’ve got a photo of a particularly nice looking face just west of Wester Wick to whet folks’ interest – 15-20 metres of clean granite with a nice ledge just above high water and a few potential routes, including one that even I might manage (I shall be slightly pissed of if someone has already climbed it!)

    Cool, sound good.

    Yes, I’ve walked most of that coast in various sections. It’s entirely possible that I’ve completely missed something though!!

    I’ve posted a pic in the New Climbs gallery. It’s a bit fuzzy as there was water on the lens but it gives you the general picture.

    Thanks Jonathan. Yeah, looking at the Grid Ref’ I’ve definitely walked that section. Quite a nice walk apart from anything else.

    I seem to remember that bit of rock being overhanging but my memory is terrible and/or I might be mixing up two different bits of rock!!

    Drive past the Skelda Ness turning to the end of the road, turn left at the t-junction then take the first right. Park at the end of that road and walk sw along the coast.

    Well we went to look and it still looks good, but best approached from the sea and later in the year as there’s a small shag colony on the ledge at the bottom. We can’t climb it until they go (i.e not before the shags f*** off)
