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!).

Crag information

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. Please keep out of the woods when this sign is present. It is a small compromise in order to maintain good access arrangements. 

Restrictions apply from 1 September - 30 March.

Reason: Live Firing

Do not access the woods if deerstalking signs are present. 

Parking and Approach

Please park considerately, making sure your vehicle doesn't block the road or any gates and do not park on the farmer's mown lawn. If the verge parking next to the access path at Kyloe Out is full, there's additional parking past the farm 300m further up the road (towards Kyloe In).
