The Hawkcraig, Aberdour

Ivor, Nettle and I met up for a morning’s climbing at the tidal quartz dolerite sea cliff of The Hawkraig at Aberdour in Fife today. The sun was shining and the seals were singing out on the islands, which made for a very pleasant back drop as we climbed a bunch of easy to mid-grade routes.

The climbing at the crag is generally very good, although a bit of care is required with loose rock/soil/sand higher up on some of the routes. It’s definitely worth checking tide times if visiting the crag as the access to a lot of the crag is much easier at mid to low tide.
