Diabaig is both a crag and a peninsular full of crags. As you stand by the jetty at Lower Diabaig village and look out across the headland, pretty much all you can see is rock. Imediatly obvious when looking from here is the pillar.

The Diabaig Crags

Directions & Approach

Grid Ref: NG 810 595 (Landranger map 24), See Streetmap

Directions

From the A896 Garve to Achnasheen. Follow signs for Kinlochewe. Turn left at Kinlochewe heading for Sheildaig. Turn right through Torridon village and follow the long and windy road for about six miles and park in Lower Diabaig. The main cliff is not obvious from here, although the classic Diabaig Pillar is.

Approach

On approach to the pillar, there is a path which rises on its left hand side. Take this and follow it until a fairly level traverse curves leftwards underneath the main slab.
