All i can think of is maybe dumbarton rock - anyone else aware of any permadry bouldering spots (that aren't insanely hard)?

Wolfcrag Quarry is often a good bet - lots of the main wall stays dry in the rain and a decent concentration of eliminates and a good traverse on that section.

Agassiz Rock

Wolfcrag Quarry

Dumbarton's everdry wall with Shattered Traverse Low (f7B)

and occasionally the problems at portlethen... Portlethen (Craigmaroinn)

and beyond that a few problems here and there at most venues, and some on Skye you can climb in the rain ;). Very few that won't seep eventually though...

But is has been busy every time I've been past recently. And clearly not all from the same household.

Doesn't really fit with social distancing. Hence I haven't been climbing there for months despite it being my regular venue...

You'd be surprised. I mean, maybe not perma-dry, but I've been climbing at Weem in some pretty heavy downpours and it stays dry. I'm sure there are other places out there.

I was going to say Cummingston too. Nice place and plenty to go at.

Wolfcrag ain't great and with some wind like today I doubt it would stay dry.

Bits of Kyloe in the woods will stay dry, the harder bits and there's the big roof at Back Bowden.

Cummingston stays dry in the rain but can suffer really badly from condensation even on a dry day.

Mauchline gorge - some decent bits to play on, the bouldering wall stays mainly dry - and, once were allowed, there the trad areas, if your feeling bold

Primrose bay and cullen caves both stay out the rain although aren't permadry as they get hit by condensation.

The tomb at the Findhorn gorge is perma dry but can seep after prolonged periods of heavy rain.
