Highland Outcrops South covers crags south of Inverness and the Great Glen, including outcrops in Arrochar, Mid Argyll, Mull of Kintyre, Ardgour and Ardnamurchan. The very popular crags of Craig a Barns, Glen Nevis, Binnein Shuas and Creag Dubh are updated, and will continue to attract the day trippers from the Central Belt.
