Am Buachaille Course information
Overview of a guided climb up Am Buachaille
We will meet in the car park at 10:00 (be aware this might need to be earlier or later depending on the tide times and if it changes we will get in touch with you). From here we will have a kit check and a safety briefing before heading out along the track towards sandalwood bay – if you have a bike in the area we can cycle this instead of walk just get in touch to let us know if this is something you want to do.
We will scramble our way down the side of the coast and along towards the point where we can walk no further! From here we must don the swim shorts and set off for a minimum 10m swim across to the sea stack. The Scottish water is normally cold up this far north so please bring a towel to dry off on the other side! We will supply dry bags so we can put all the kit in them and it will stay dry and secure for getting changed back into normal clothes on the other side of the channel and starting our climb.
The climb we will tackle is the classic landward face which is three pitches long before abseiling off once we are done and swimming back to the shore and working our way back to the car park.
