Myopics Buttress can be found above the road on the north end of Craig Barns at Dunkeld. The crag offers steep sport climbing with a roof a mid height.


The crag has a chequered past being the scene of frequent debolting for reasons unknown. This is rummored to be because of climbers blocking the gate to the Atholl estate (?), so don't block the gate!


Routes are described left to right.
