Rhue Sea cliffs
Rhue sea cliffs are situated at the end of the Rhue road which leaves the main road 3 miles north of Ullapool. There are approximately 40 routes grading from difficult to E4 and several good bouldering circuits of all grades. As a west to north-west facing cliff, the main cliff takes a while to dry but Gernwalls tend to dry quickly.
4 Miles north of Ullapool, park by entrance to fish farm. Walk up glen: crags can be seen from the road. There are about 100 routes grading from difficult to E6 mainly on steep, good quality sandstone. Crags face south-west and tend to dry quickly. The climbing tends to be of a brutal nature.
Take the road to Achiltibuie 8 miles north of Ullapool. Follow road to junction for Reiff which is at the western point of the Achiltibuie peninsula. Reiff consists of several geos giving routes of 5 to 50 metres on good quality sandstone. Grades go from difficult to E7. There are at least 300 routes spread along 5 miles of coastline. Great place to climb with a lot of starred routes.
