From Ayrshire, into the Central Belt and up to the Stirlingshire hills, the Lowland regions of Scotland are within easy travel distance of its two main cities and the majority of its climbing population. Though perhaps lacking the grandeur of the Highlands, the Lowlands make up for this in variety and accessibility with dolerite quarries, adventurous greywacke sea-cliffs and basalt test-pieces. With over 1,900 trad, sport and bouldering routes, from esoteric gems to world-classics, the area holds something for everyone.

Compiled and updated by local activists, this new guide presents the best that the Lowlands have to offer. With colour photographic topos throughout, inspiring action shots, detailed maps, public transport and accessibility details, it’s designed for both seasoned climbers and those taking their first steps onto outdoor crags.

Coverage of the book includes Stirlingshire, Glasgow, Ayrshire, the Forth Valley, Berwickshire Coast and the Borders - but NB not Dumfries and Galloway.

  • Over 1,900 routes, with almost every route on a diagram.
  • 224 high resolution crag diagrams.
  • Inspiring action photos.
  • Detailed access maps designed with accessibility in mind.
  • Essential crag information to aid planning.
  • Details of accessible climbing venues.
