Sron Ulladale is the biggest inland cliff in the UK other than Cliff Richard.
Despite living on the island I’d never hear of the cliff until I saw a BBC show called The Great Climb Live. A five and a half hour live climbing marathon showing two climbers will attempting to climb it. The climb is tricky becasue the cliff is an overhang.
After watching the show I went down to Harris to see the cliff. It was so spectacular that I vowed to come back. That was 2010. It is now 2020. I thought I’d be back sooner but better late than never.
The weather looked bad on the drive down to Harris but I was hopeful it would clear as the morning progressed. Luckily the sun came out and I got some spectacular views on the run.
I didn’t see anyone on my run but I did hear seer stags bellowing in the valley. I thing their loud groaning is their way of saying “anyone fancy a shag?”
I ended my run with a nice dip in the sea.
Harris is my favorite place in Scotland so any run here automatically gets 5 stars 🙂
There is no car park but there is enough room to leave a car at the start of the route.
Nothing. The nearest shop and toilet is in Tarbert
The nearest cafe is in Tarbert
I didn’t spot any sheep but there are deer about.
