A'Chreag Dhearg - Climbing Stories of the Angus Glens


Compiled and co-authored by veteran climber Grant
Farquhar with contributions from a range of voices
within Scotland's close-knit climbing community, A'
Chreag Dhearg traces the rich climbing history of the
Angus Glens.

Although less frequented than the forbidding ramparts
of Glencoe or Skye, the crags and gullies in this unique
area of the Cairngorms harbour classic summer and
winter lines that have attracted some of Scotland's
most respected climbers over the course of a century. In
this engaging collection of vignettes and photographs,
the origins of many of the glens- best-loved routes are
described in intimate detail in an entertaining style that
will appeal to both local climbers and those seeking
new venues to explore. The authors have woven the
distinctive dialect and humour of this corner of Scotland
into the narrative, imbuing it with a quality that is, by
turns, both edgy and wistful.

Despite the deceptively narrow scope of this story, the
breadth with which it is considered here captures the
way that climbing has developed in Scotland over time,
and how this history is often exceptionally localised. A?
Chreag Dhearg is both a tribute to Victorian pioneers
and latter-day trailblazers and a poignant reflection on
formative, youthful endeavours.
