The Sandwood Shepherd
Getting to Sandwood Bay in the far north-west of the Scottish mainland is considerably more arduous than reaching many islands. However, its massive beach is well worth the effort and just offshore is the sea-stack, Am Buachaille, known as 'The Shepherd'. It was first climbed in 1968 and on YouTube is the opportunity to see a more recent ascent. If you have heights to reach this week, here's one to savour on your screen without effort.
