Watch: The Great Sea Cliffs of Scotland

Compiled by Guy Robertson, The Great Sea Cliffs of Scotland is an anthology of outrageous climbing adventures from twenty-six of the most extraordinary sea cliffs across Scotland. With contributions from some of the most renowned pioneers and activists in the field of climbing, this compilation traces the remarkable history of Scottish sea cliff climbing and offers a glimpse of its future. Original poetry by Stuart Campbell complements each introductory section, and exclusive images from some of the UK’s most distinguished photographers reveal the cliffs in high resolution with unique clarity and vibrance, capturing the drama and scale of these magnificent seascapes.

“For anyone with the slightest interest in the history, scenery and climbs on the sea cliffs of Scotland, this fantastic book is a must. It inspires and motivates in equal measure, and convinces me that, surely, there is nowhere in the world that rivals the variety and beauty of sea cliff climbing in Scotland. I can’t wait to get back.” – Mick Fowler, renowned climber, explorer and author.

“Even if you’re only vaguely into Scottish rock climbing, your life isn’t complete without this book. There’s bagfuls of inspiration here, in places that are familiar to you and others you’ve yet to explore.” – Rob Greenwood,

Author biography

The corporate world was cast aside when Rob became a freelance publisher in 2018. Having climbed in a variety of interesting places, he now has a young family, and the scale of his climbing objectives has temporarily diminished. Aside from the occasional Scottish adventure, Rob can usually be found sitting beneath a sandstone outcrop, trying to spot handholds.
