Good morning Outdoor Magician's

Here's a wee video from a trip last summer to climb and film the classic Am Buachaille sea stack in the Far North West of Scotland.

Am Buachaille aka The Shepherd is one of the coveted "Big 3" sea stacks in Scotland along with the Old Men of Stoer and Hoy. With it's 4 mile walk in from Blairmore followed by a tricksome descent and approach, culminating with a "character building" swim across a 15 metre channel of water exposed only at low tide, this Old Man is considered to be the most remote and serious of them all...

Anyway it was an lovely day clambering up the excellent 3* VS Landward Face route in perfect weather on possibly one of the best "adventure" routes in the UK, before collapsing on the beautiful Sandwood Bay beach. Featuring the beautiful walk-in, approach and swim, sandstone sea stack shenanigans, fearsome fulmers, eye-popping exposure plus some aerial drone footage this is the story of our day!



All constructive feedback welcome, please feel free to share to your FB friends and hopefully it may brighten up your tea break and even inspire a few folks to head to the beautiful region of Sutherland and climb on one of Scotland's finest!

Happy climbing!
