Am Buachaille Info
Am Buachaille is a sea stack, or vertical rock formation composed of Torridonian Sandstone. The stack is 65 metres (213 ft) high and located 1 mile (1.6 km) south-west of Sandwood Bay. It lies at the tip of the Rubh’ a Bhuachaille headland around 5 miles (8.0 km) north of Kinlochbervie.
The stack is very popular with climbers and was first climbed in 1968 by the mountaineers Tom Patey, Ian Clough and John Cleare. At least four climbing routes are identified on Am Buachaille, with even the easiest route graded as Hard Very Severe (HVS) and access to the stack involves a 30 metres (98 ft) swim at low tide.
