Climbing and Camping on The Island of Erraid, Mull.

Liam Irving on the Pink Walls.
The last two days I have been instructing on Erraid an island just off the Ross of Mull. The island is home to some of the best single pitch rock climbing in Scotland. Short, but steep and powerful climbing generally located off grass ledges above emerald seas and white shell beaches combine to seduce all climbers to make a visit to the mecca of pink granite. It's a perfect place to both learn to climb or be guided. Routes of all grades and styles abound. Hand jamming is to be savoured and if steep wall climbing is your preferred option there are plenty of such routes to be had.  Worth a visit.
