From Bellingham take the westerly minor road just after the bridge and opposite the cemetary. Follow this for 3 miles and turn up to High Cairpeth farm. Park on the verge just before the farm and ask permission from the friendly owner. Take the good track towards the cottage but branch off partway aiming for a gate on the skyline. Go through this and follow a vague track leftwards around the minor rocks, then after a few hundred yards branch right to the crag itself.

Restrictions apply from 1 March - 30 June.
