About Ratho Quarry:

Although somewhat spoiled by the construction of the EICC center in half the quarry, this remains one of the best concentrations of hard trad routes in the central lowlands. Sheltered and sunny, so good most of the year.

Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: Drive round the left of the climbing center and park at the back of the quarry. Walk down the side of the cow field and descend the over-engineered stairwell to the quarry floor. You will have to reach round to undo the 'exit only' latch on the gate, but the center are cool with the access.
Camping: No
