Meeting cancelled due to a complete lack of interest!

Meet Promo:

And now for something adventurous and a bit different. Just over the Border in Scotland from Berwick on Tweed we have the "Fast Castle" coastal area near St. Abb's. Taking a look in the Lowland Outcrops guide you'll find some greywacke sea cliffs with a good mix of grades and stars. There are fins like Sharpnose and a sea stack, the Souter. To add to the adventure, there are even one or two scottish VS's here too. I haven't been here before but always interested in somewhere new. Should be something for everyone to play at.

Typical access is from Dowlaw farm (GR857702 on 1:50000 No. 67) - probably starting from here on Saturday Morning (perhaps having driven up same day). Sunday can be more of the same or if people have had enough, we can move back across the border to some Northumbrian rock (which is the poor weather alternative). Camping is more problematic - most are static caravan sites and it is not clear at present whether they really take tents (or if you'd want to stay there!). Though I do know a good site in Wooler, back in England?

Contact me before the trip for final details - this had to be written well in advance due to being out of the country at the critical time.
