Several significant recently-discovered venues have been added, including ‘Supercrag Sport’ (Loch Maree Sport) and ‘Supercrag Trad’ (Creag Rodha Mor), along with a host of mainly easier additions at the superlative Diabaig.

On the islands, many recent additions on the popular Skye sea cliffs of Suidhe Biorach, Neist and the recently-cleaned Staffin Slip South have been included. Similarly, the abundance of superb rock on Lewis, Pabbay and Mingulay has been well documented, with many new topos illustrating the wealth of wonderful climbing throughout a range of grades.

Gary Latter

A native Scot, Gary Latter has climbed extensively throughout Scotland for over four decades, pioneering hundreds of new routes of every standard throughout the Highlands and Islands, including major new routes and early repeats in all the major climbing areas throughout the country. During the dozen or so years researching and compiling these guides, he has personally visited and climbed on almost all the crags and cliffs documented, amassing an extensive collection of photographs along the way.

His favourite places in Scotland are the islands and the north west – anywhere with the possibility of finding new unclimbed rock, secluded beaches, and hopefully some decent weather and nae midges! Amongst these, Mingulay, Pabbay and the small tidal island of Erraid, off Mull, are some of the most memorable venues.
