This site offers a 1046 ft top to bottom and is a good south easterly site with easy top landing and hugh bottom landings. It was not used much for a while due to Beinn-y-Phott offering more reliable thermal activity but more recently Slieau Ruy has made something of a come back. Evening glides to the Crosby pub are possible making the walk up more rewarding.
