Advice Kyloe Crag (Kyloe In & Kyloe Out)

Two crags in the Kyloe woods, also known as Dues Heugh (Kyloe In) and Collar Heugh (Kyloe Out) offer excellent climbing in an atmosopheric setting. While the main crag offers great routes on a series of isolated buttress and a quarried section, Kyloe in the Wood has an almost magical woodland ambience (and lots of 'challenging' climbing to boot!).

Access relationships at Kyloe Crag and Kyloe-in-the-woods are good, please ensure that they stay that way. Park sensibly (don't block the gateways) and keep dogs under control - particular when crossing fields with grazing sheep and cattle.

Woodland Management will sometimes engage in deerstalking in these woods - there will be a sign on site when the stalker is working and Woodland Management will prohibit access to the crag.
