Rock and Indoor Climbing in Shetland
Shetland has few indoor climbing centres open to the public and offering a wide range of climbing and bouldering activities.
The wild seas, the constantly changing weather and the remoteness of the islands makes Shetland very unique rock climbing experiences in Britain.
Scotland has many different types of rock offering a great selection of climbing styles as well as a variety of different venues. There are many smaller, often roadside crags for shorter routes, or, for the more ambitious there are superb, serious mountain and sea cliff routes in remote settings which involve long walk-ins over rough ground and where camping is necessary for any extended stay, as well as inaccessible islands offering sea cliff climbing.
