I am trying to find a guide book for Moray, Aberdeenshire and the Cromarty Firth area but seem to be drawing a blank. I admit I’m only just coming back to climbing because my daughter wants to climb, but surely guide books are still called guidebooks are they not? Anyway, can someone post me in the right direction please as I can see from the map on here there are some good local routes.
If you have a look at the tabs available for a crag ( top right drop down menu), you'll find a "guidebooks" field. If there is a guidebook to a crag it will be listed.
Here's one that might do:
North East Outcrops
Author Neil Morrison
Published SMC (2003)
Excellent thanks, I was looking through the climbs list but failed to see the guide ok but, that’s fab thanks
...and there's also 7a Max, and an SMC Sport equivalent, covering all of Scotland's sport climbing. The former is pretty cheap and has been the motivation fo a few visits to new places, often in your neck of the woods.
FWIW, I've got a copy of North East Outcrops guidebook for sale for £11 including postage.
If you are interested, drop me a message, although it's currently advertised on Facebook Outdoor Gear Exchange so I can guarantee how long I'll still have it for....
Thanks Mark but someone beat you to it. I’ve also picked up a copy of Highland Outcrops as I think that covers some stuff to the south of me over towards aviemore way.
The return of large numbers of people to national parks and other upland areas in England has brought a spike in littering, wildfires and mountain rescue incidents. Some issues appear to be worse than during equivalent periods in past years.
