27-02-11, Latheronwheel, Caithness - Rock Climbing

In search of some more Scottish Rock action, Jules and I went on a long drive North towards Wick. We stopped at Latheron on the Caithness coast and climbed on the mud/sandstone sea cliffs. Again and again I am constantly impressed by the quality and atmosphere of the different rock crags I visit in Scotland. This one is definitely going to be visited again. We enjoyed sun, solitude and steep walls of fine rock. On first impressions it looks like tottering choss, not only to the untrained eye either. Jules is a geologist and expressed his concerns upon the walk in. However the rock with all its breaks and cracks is actually very solid. We went to a few different areas, most of which were non-tidal.
