Approaching the Whangie
Approaching the Whangie
This peculiar rock feature is thought to have resulted from glacial action during the ice ages. This has shaved a section off the main cliff forming a very narrow ravine, only about 2 feet in one place.The ravine extends over 100 yards in length with rocks towering up to 40 feet high on either side. This has provided a haven for rock climbers. The area is easily accessed just one mile from the Queens View car park on the A809,Stockiemuir road. It is worth while continuing around to climb Auchineden Hill, of which this is part, for the view.
